Budgets and exemptions
I have always lived on a budget, and have been against most bond issues because I either thought them unnecessary or overpriced. If I have to live on a budget, and do without, or make do with less, then government should be held to the same standard.
It is not government’s money, it is the tax payers’ money. Now that I am a retired senior citizen I have learned great news. If you are 61 years old and make under $35,000 a year, you qualify for property tax exemptions. You can vote yes on the school bond and not have to pay for it.
Your part of the tax increase can be passed on to your younger neighbor.
Why not vote yes on the bonds? I ask you, isn’t America wonderful?
