Mimi Larsen, who along with Paul Goosens grilled me at the Chamber Debate, is passing out information on the levy. This story in the last Budgeteer is about as close as you will get to finding out how the levy funds would be spent.

In fact, there is no telling how the funds will be spent. Someone at the Chamber debate suggested that telling the public how the money would be used would help pass the levy. Nancy Nilsen explained that because the Board was facing only cuts unless the highest tier of the levy passed, at $1200/pupil, the School Board didn’t want to be seen as using threats to pass the levy.

One person who got through to Mimi was told to ask the District how it would use the levy money. In other words, Vote Yes For Kids is almost as informative as the Mimi’s other group Move Forward Duluth.
