Money won't cure spenders

Money won't cure spenders

To the Editor:
Dig deep; property tax bills are due in a few short weeks, and guess what? The new school taxes are retroactive to last year.

Surprised they raised your taxes for last year, too? They're going to skyrocket every year now.

The con men in your school district are laughing all the way to the bank.

Be sure to attend the next school board meeting; the agenda is "bigger raises for everyone" (and a super bonus with perks for the great administrator, too).

Does anyone think we've cured the education money problem? They've already planned the next referendum.

I really do feel sorry for our elderly; they've given everything, and now are forced to move because of education's taxing greed.

In a few short years, all the brainwashed students who celebrated this past election will realize that they can't afford a house or apartment, thanks to education insanity.

With 90 percent of your property tax going to education, how long before we have monthly property tax bills more than $1,000? Weekly?

It's a disgrace, criminal and has bankrupted the county, state and our future.

I do feel sorry for our schools. They are sick, and money won't cure them.
