1 quick reply, due to other commitments, more later.
Is there seems to be no list of priorities/needs laid out to voters. Just last year it was a major upgrade to Wa-Hi. Then after the elections and the bond loss, a front page of the U-B laid out a picture of how bad Lincoln is now, and it needs major ASAP. Our feelings are that there needs to be a list laid out and in order of needs versus wants. And then we need to go after those lists (in order) until we can fix these items. It seems to us that there is several things that need structure etc.
I have heard that there is this sentiment all over town, even by people who voted for the bond previously are appalled by this move. At this rate, I see it failing bad.
Myself, as it stands right now, I like this 10 million better than the previous bond request.
Did I calculate this correct? We have spent over $80,000 on the recent and up-coming elections? This seems to be a lot money spent on trying to convince us voters that they are financially capable of using our money..........
While it is obvious that some of these costs were needed, couldnt they do a little planning ,combining and use some of this money towards doing a little upkeep on a School?
Just seems excessive. It is obvious that the UB seems it to be too, as the way they worded this article.
Thanks. I thought it was already allocated taxes.... Sorry for the confusion.
So, am I correct? (using your figures) There is $659,337 in taxes earmarked for the building already? Where are these funds coming from? Are they reducing the funding from other areas, i.e. sports, math, P.E. etc? What happens to these monies if this project fails? And if these monies were taken from other areas, I question why it was going to those projects already.......
Also, is this a already parking lot rebuilt or a truly new lot?
Since you live in CP, none of your tax money was used to fund the raises or the aviary.
Actually Father of 5....
Some of us didn't want ANY bond until we pay some bills (bonds) off first and see how CP student loss impacts us. We voted and I had hoped that they listened. Boy, was I wrong....
And here we are again...... While I am more understanding with this version (compared to last one), I am a more than a little disappointed in the board, by pushing any bond again so soon! They didn't hear us, I guess! They just think they need our money at all costs!
Also, how do you purpose we contact our board? We have voiced our concerns at meetings, we have wrote letters to the U-B, we voted accordingly and yet they don't seem to listen to us... (it sounds like they don't really want to listen to their own advisory task force, either), it is more than disappointing.
It seems it is going to take a couple of elections to get the board to slow down a little.
This idea would get my vote
RE: Downhiller.... She does not want to add to the conversation at all, she just wants to make sure NamVet does not contribute either!
Please vote on this subject on the main homepage of the U-B.
