The last time there was a referendum, I was an unapologetic “No” – I insisted the school find ways to cut costs. I am now convinced the school has done all it can in this economy and with the funding formula. As a result, I have decided to vote “Yes” on May 8.
In conversations with State Supt. Tony Bennett and state legislators, I was told they do not anticipate changes in the school funding formula for some time. As a result, I have concluded the only remedy our school system has is to ask the community to vote for the referendum.
The information I used to come to this conclusion is publicly available. I encourage our community to find the facts, not depend on what others are saying.
