Alanna Oswald was keeping track of the pro-con email count to the School Board up through last night. We’ve probably gotten another 70 emails today and I only read the one we received from Mike Miernicki so I don’t know how they run today. It probably hasn’t changed. As of last night we had received 90 sells to 9 don’t sells. We may need a poll of the City to give us an idea if this is what the public at large thinks.
I fear that if we ignore the public’s will that it will be a cold day in hell before Duluth’s citizens pass an operating levy again. That would be a kick in the head. Turn down $14.2 million and then lose operational referendums. I would not want to serve on that School Board.
