You can take a gun and break into your neighbors house and steal his money, or you can pass a bond and rob him at the tax office. Does David Stein really believe that, " it's a good decision to pass the bond because it will create a better learning environment or does he understand that these bonds are high interest paper he and his buddies can purchase in an economy which cannot offer what local property taxpayers will have to pay. Once again we're forced fight to keep what we have, vote NO.

Charles, your comment is completely offensive to me. You and I have never met yet you have the audacity to judge me. First of all, the bonds the school will be issuing are very low interest notes. Second, I have no idea who you think my "buddies" are that will be buying these bonds and Third, if you'd like access to my bank account, I'll be happy to show you what's there, I won't be buying any bonds, never have, just trying to support my family.
