I believe that we owe our children the best education possible. The building is not what will do that.
All someone has to do is, do a study, and they will bite hook line and sinker. They need to put the students first and not the bells and whistles.
Look at who gets the lion share of all the property taxes. It is the school systems. If I am not mistaken, they receive around 60% of your tax money.
Now they want more and when this is completed they will want even more. They have no interest in community pride or tradition.
Mr. Melon, how much do you make a year including your perks? How about you making a sacrifice and take a huge pay cut. I know that it would be so hard for you to live on a mere $100,000 a year. that would be such a sacrifice.
Let's forget about the glitz and glamour and put the emphasis in the class rooms. Our heritage and traditions mean far more than you and your lofty
goals of Taj Mahal buildings.
Look for waste and savings before you ask for more. It was stated in the paper that Mr. Melon has gone to all of the Redevelopment Commissions, looking for a handout. Asking for huge sums of money. Now a referendum and that won't be the end.
We need to send a loud and resounding message, enough is enough.
