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!

Everyone is crying about no budget for schools but do you remember why it's so bad? Remember Pete Wilson's fight with the Teachers union just as the lottery was starting and the teachers told him they wouldn't back him so he told them that they would get the lottery money but Pete would take back an equal amount from the school budget since they wouldn't back him
So if you have any complaints send them to Pete Wilson and his Republican buddies
So easy to forget the past and repeat it again
Wrong. Pete Wilson did more for education in California than any Governor in the past 30 years. Wilson took over a state that was in shambles. It was the worst state for business taxes and regulation. He cut taxes and eased regulation, had business humming and left with a strong surplus. Now we are back in the same exact position as when he left office.
