These talking points are so stupid.
The plan is only half paid for and the “low” taxes we’re currently paying will be doubled before we finish paying for it. $90 million more will be added to our tax burden in 2011 and that doesn’t count the fall operational levy.
The District did not have decrepit buildings. It spent an extra $30 million over the last 15 years to fix them up.
People yearning for great educational classrooms for our kids will yearn for enough teachers to teach them once the fall operational levy fails.
These talking points are being given to uninformed people to spout off but they do nothing to inform them of the District’s realities.
I suspect these were all written by the District’s PR person because I hear the same foolishness spouted over and over.
