Do you support the school bond issue?
Asked at Community Mercantile on February 3, 2003
“Yeah, of course, as long as it doesn’t imply something else, a hidden agenda.”
“No, I don’t support it. I don’t support the school closings, first of all, and the money could be better spent. It needs to be planned and probably scaled down.”
“No, I think the funds could be better spent on teacher’s salaries, programs and basic services as opposed to new buildings.”
“I’m kind of torn. … I do have concerns about it, but I want to see those kids and the staff who work [at the alternative high school] encouraged.”
