Hold On To Your Wallets
Taxpayers hold on to your wallets! Now that the local school board has voted to keep all schools open, sign a five-year lease for fancy office space for administration and refuses to cut the untouchables,(education for adults, and unnecessary administration such as middle school principal) our out-of-control taxes are about to become even more ridiculous.
It is understandable why any parent would want to keep their neighborhood school open, but the other items such as adult ed which is funded at the expense of the children need to be eliminated. A five-year lease for fancy office space when there is space available within the SAD 44 facilities is also a waste of taxpayer money. Here's another idea worth considering -- when SAD 44 receives an unfunded mandate from the state, how about we don't fund it either.
Taxpayers need to speak up and let those that control the faucet of unlimited taxation know that enough is enough. Rick Whitney
