I congratulate you on your willingness to oppose the School Board tax extension. I support letting the tax expire because of the bad economy. Governments should feel the same pain that those of us in private business suffer. During the past three years, my employees have suffered losses in their pay, or even their jobs. I doubt that the loss of the tax revenue will cause a large turnover of our teachers, but it will help to lower our cost of government during these difficult times. The School Board's willingness to spend $500,000 for a special election shows that they need a lesson in proper stewardship of tax dollars. Their strategy with a special election is that only teachers and parents would vote, which may be a clever move on their part, but it a waste of our tax dollars.
- Brilliant piece. Public employee salaries and benefits have skyrocketed over the years because of these automatic raises and kickers. It's time they stopped. Cuts need to be made. Who in private industry hasn't had a pay cut in one way or another?
