ABC Board Consideration of a
$235 Million Bond
Eleanor C. Wrobel et al, July 18, 2014
The government's answer to a financial crunch so often seems to be "JUST RAISE TAXES."
Hard working private citizens, and retirees on fixed incomes, don't have this kind of option.
We have to decrease expenses and spending at times, in order to be financially solvent.
The ABC School Board is considering a $235 Million bond for citizens to vote on in the upcoming
November election. This bond would increase each household's taxes between $200. and $400. per year.
Maybe the school district should consider the fact that it can't afford a "21st century learning
environment" - at least not on the backs of an already over-taxed population.
We will work actively to defeat the bond measure if it is placed on the November ballot.
