Thus, CURRENTLY, I pay $591.97 EACH YEAR just in property taxes for our local school district. This does NOT include the "voluntary" $700 I am "coerced" into paying EACH year for the "school fees" when I register my child for classes. This also does NOT include the approximately $600 I pay each year for my child to play one sport at the local school.
Thus, CURRENTLY, EACH YEAR, I am paying approximately $1,891 for our public school. This obviously does NOT include the huge amounts in federal and state taxes that I pay each year that allegedly go to "education".
Yet, I received a phone call from a "local teacher", asking me if she could count on my vote for yet ANOTHER TAX for the so-called public school my child attends. Apparently, putting expensive, fancy, solar panels on all the schools is not enough, they "desperately" need more of my money.
Enough is enough! I encourage everyone who feels similar to me to get informed and vote AGAINST anymore taxes for our school district. We obviously need a top to bottom audit, and have some new people actually look at our school district budget and see what is going on. I encourage everyone to demand that anyone running for our school district pledge a "no vote" on any more taxes, or do not vote for them.
Look around, there is a huge recession going on, and if you are lucky enough to be working, you certainly are not flush with extra money for yet more taxes.
I live in a small, three bedroom house, in a very average neighborhood, but yet my property taxes for our local school district are through the roof.
I would like to hear if any of the candidates for the school board actually have the guts to respond to this. I doubt I will hear from anyone. Some one needs to have the courage to stand up for us tax payers, and tell the school board, the gravy train is done!
