Beware Danville PTA School Parcel Tax Scheme
Original post made by Taxpayer, Danville, on Mar 14, 2010
The PTA, which recently has been taken over by supporters of the teachers union, is now sending out to all parents of our district a demand that they sign a petition to lower the number of votes needed for a parcel tax, from 65% to 55%. The PTA use to be a respected group of hard working parents, with common sense, who valued the community. Recently, they have been taken over by supporters of the teachers union, and their primary goal is not what is best for our community, but rather what is best for the teachers union. The PTA deliberately holds their meetings in the morning during work hours, so that parents who actually work for a living and pay the bills and taxes, can not attend. The teachers union has bullied misinformed parents into supporting the parcel tax scheme for the benefit of the teachers union. Please get informed, have common sense, and do not support a tax scheme,assuming that the PTA has your best interest at heart, because they do not!
