Sounds like the votes have taught the school board the difference between want and needs. Most teach there children the same lesson and I would guess the same 53%. To bad LPA didnt get the same message.

Don’t worry – will be just like West Fargo. They will just keep increasing the price of the project and push the vote till eventually it does pass. They need to have a cooling off period for such things I think not take a vote every 6 months till it goes.

I’m sick of that tactic. It’s not a West Fargo problem, it seems to be a problem all over this region. We’ll get the voters to decide an issue. Oops, they turned us down. That’s ok, we’ll cry about it in the press and tell everyone how the sky is now falling. Then we’ll be back to the ballot box with our hand out next election. We’ll eventually get it passed.

It’s simple people in Central Cass do not care about children’s education.

What part of “no” does the greedy education cabal not understand?

When it comes to education there will never be enough money. There is always another building or another language that they feel the kids should learn. If little Johnny wants to be in a play and speak 5 languages then his parents should pay. Parents want us to pay for their kids but they will not let us discipline them when they are being disruptive out in society.

As one who does not reside in that school district, please educate me. The article makes it look like the money is not for salaries or the like. If for most taxpayers the property tax impact would be $7.50 – $15 per month ($90 yr on 100k or $180 yr/200k home?) there must be good reason why half the people opppose it?

It’s because they don’t have kids, most likely.

Or it’s because around 65% of our already high property taxes go to schools.

Getting the house paid for and reducing expenditures to match limited retirement income is essential for many older home owners, and ever-increasing property taxes have got to be brought under control. Schools going to the well too often may ultimately result in a backlash where voters eliminate the property tax in the Nov. 2012 or later elections.
