Okay, so the bond package passed. We'll all being paying higher taxes for the next 30 years.

Here is a prediction:

The school board will come back to the well asking for more within the next three years. They are no different than any other government entity. They view the taxpayers as an endless supply of money.

I think the bottom line to today is that it is very hard to defeat these things when your own tax dollars are used to campaign against you.

The bond package was promoted by district employees at school sponsored events.
Pro bond package material was distributed at school sponsored events.
District employees worked to promote the bond package while on district time.
Teachers promoted the bond package during class time.
etc,etc,etc.

You are correct ETEX. I am ashamed of the way the campaign rules were ignored. Signs on the property of our public schools for YES. Chamber of Commerce promoting the YES vote. As a funded entity of public funds this was wholly illegal. You point out the campainging on the part of school employees, while hard to proove. took place with renlesess fervor.

I am still shocked after 35 years of voting that 6% of the voting public can manipulate the tax burden on the remaining 94%. This amounts to the approximate number of those in the school district who will not miss a dime of the tax increase. All you that voted YES should be ashamed of yourselves.

Craig Johnson won one place. The other place will come down to a runoff between Clay Walker and Bradley Edge. Walker had 700 votes and Edge had 580 (those are rounded off numbers), but neither got 50 percent of the vote because there were so many candidates in the field.
The runoff is, I think, sometime in June.

Is the Chamber of Commerce publicly funded? I thought it was wholly funded by its members.
