The commissioners should put this to a vote. Our taxes are high enough now. We don't need anymore of that or bond money to pay for something that KU wants us to pay for for. If they want a new facility, let them build it through endowment money. Not with Lawrence citizens hard earned money as taxes.

they put the $18 million library to a vote and it didn't matter for those of us who didn't want to waste the money on a wasteful project. why should this be any different?

this thing is in the bag. it's already been decided.
