Thank you for your input. +2 Vote up Vote down Redress · 322 weeks ago I agree. $2.54 a month is less then a 30 candy bars, soda a day, ect. But what ever it is a month it is worth it more then no security for our kids. Report Reply 2 replies · active 322 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down guest · 322 weeks ago But it’s so much more. This is the way I see this bond issue. Lets take care of the stuff we have been neglecting. Lets add-on some wish list stuff. All in the name of “safety and security”. ( have we scared you yet) Then have the b-lls to tell me we don’t think your smart enough to choose what you want to vote for (security and safety or the whole ball of wax) so we will bundle it up to help your dumb -ss out. Pretty sure its not the dumb part but a guilt trip the board is throwing at us. Do we put a bond issue every time we need a roof, carpet, repair work on boiler that’s been neglected? You walk around our schools and the maintenance on them is terrible. They can’t even do the simple tasks like tuck in some mortar on bricks, caulk some windows, fix some trim Do anything that makes me think there is some sort of P.M. program in effect. This will be an endless cycle till we get someone in there to maintain and protect our assets. Report Reply +1 Vote up Vote down Bazinga · 322 weeks ago I agree with guest. We might as well vote yes on this now. If it doesn’t pass this time, we’ll have to vote on it again next year, and again until it passes. I am feeling bad for being sarcastic.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments To the editor: I am writing this as a concerned parent of five current and three future USD 353 students: I also teach dozens of preschool children who go on to enter the public school system.I would like to urge the registered voters of Wellington and Mayfield to go to the polls on June 24 and vote to pass the Safe and Secure Schools Bond Project. Passing this will result in a tax increase of only $2.54 per month on a $100,000 home and will make our schools safer from tornado disasters and more secure from intruders who would like to harm our children. That $2.54 per month would also pay for needed repairs and updates to the middle school and elementary schools. We need to act on this now in order to qualify for the state to pay 52 percent of the principle and interest on the cost of these projects out of the funds collected from wealthier school districts in the state.Surely the safety and security of our children is worth spending less than most of us spend on coffee and soft drinks in a month. Pleas mark June 24 on your calendars and vote in this important special election.Phyllis Rains. Follow us on Twitter.last_img
