Letter to the Editor

Hornswoggled again?

Thursday, May 11, 2006

Dear Editor,

Thank you Diane (Lyons) for standing up for the taxpayers and patrons of this district.

Your courage and conscience are appreciated. This poor stewardship of taxpayer dollars is every bit as egregious, if not more, than a similar situation from which we are still stinging.

This information would have been nice to have had before going to the polls today. The $34,730 salary differential could have been used to add a teacher, give our current teachers a much- deserved raise, or reinstate some of the programs that have been cut due to lack of funds. Go figure.

Add the $38,666 for seventh grade competitive sports and think of the possibilities a property tax cut perhaps?
