Sound off for April 13, 2014
The Fairfield-Suisun school board heard the results of a survey of residents about a possible parcel tax for schools.
Here are some comments from our website on an article before the meeting:
- Wake up people, zero percent should be supporting a parcel tax. Expenses need to be gotten under control, just like our own have to be . . . Aren’t we all taxed enough? . . . Do not give these vultures one more cent.
- I’m happy to support the parcel tax and increased accountability so our students remain well-prepared for the jittery and inconsistent economic future ahead. We need to invest in education.
- There is little question the district can more money to good use. State funding formulas notoriously underfund large suburban districts like FSUSD.
- I voted for Measure C some years back, thinking the money would be spent on better classrooms and buildings. I am still angry it was spent for the new district office and its furniture. Never again will I vote for school taxes. I really feel the voters were tricked on that one!
