We already see so many bonds on our property tax. It just seems like we are already getting over taxed at every turn. With the excellent incomes in this area it seems that there should already be enough revenue. I'd rather prioritize these initiatives along with other existing spending initiatives. Perhaps reduce other spending if this is more important now.

Mr. Pursey,
Your property tax is being redistributed. State school funding is a patchwork that has historically not done a lot for SRVUSD. The cogs in State wheels are discouragingly complicated. Generous donations from the community continually prop up our schools. Delve into the politics of school funding and you'll certainly get a headache trying to sort it out.

On a local level, we might be able to respectfully SUGGEST that the district be accountable for waste and foolishness. You also might want to take a look at administrative salaries and perks.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
