Am I the only one that thinks a $1 million is a lot of money, let alone $17 million? Yes, Mr. (Brian) Henning, you can be excited on your big win. My taxes are going up $150 on top of all the other taxes, for the next 30 years. How much were your personally involved? Very few of us make $100,000 plus, but you don’t live in our district, so you don’t pay a red cent. You already applied for another job leaving us this huge debt.

How much is 700 students into $17 million? How much is 70 graduating students into $17 million?

It’s nice to see all these students on the honor rolls, in our city band, and graduating from college, some even with honors, and all without a shiny new gym or fitness center. Its thanks to our teachers.

With all the wealthy people voting for this, how come we have so many people on free or reduced meals?

Our city budget is looking for money always, the utility rates are always going up and street work scheduled is going to be expensive, let alone all the others that are in great need of repair. To think a fourth super-gym will help our students with future meaningful employment. Sussek Machine would like our shop courses more up to date, how far has that gotten? We are not too far away from being involved with Foxconn Technology and they are after tech people.

The bottom line, from what I’ve read of the referendums, is that none of it is for education.
