The people have already spoken on levy

Print Article

What part of “the people have spoken” is so hard to get?

Why do we have to continue to vote on the levy, when our community already voted it down?

How much of the levy money goes to supplement the free breakfast program? This is a free grant program. It should raise concerns that we lost the program at the high school. Exactly why did we lose it? It is a free program. People need to step up and take responsibility for their actions. How about telling the truth about what’s been going on?

Why was it necessary to get a digital sign at the elementary school? How much in extra taxpayer funds did that cost?

Also, why do we have to balance everything in the school district on the back of the teachers and classified staff?

I can guarantee you that no one at the district office will take a pay cut. These questions only touch on a small part of the issues

in our district. Anyone with any sense operates on a budget, it’s high time the West Bonner County School District did as well.

I encourage you to vote no on May 21.
