Little Bits Adding Up To A Lot ...

Tonight is time for the School Board to meet.  

Please come and express your opinion about the increase in taxes.  We have over 1300 signatures on our petition to stop the tax increase.  

Last week, the weather was too bad to work or we would have had over 1500.  Our signatures come from all over the County, not just the Easley.

The most common comment I have gotten from those unwilling to sign is that they are against the increase, but are afraid of teacher's retaliation against their child or the administration's retaliation against their child' teacher.  

Great School Distict!  

Show courage my friends!

We are getting some blow back from former Board members who caused this problem in the first place.  One of these ex-members is the one that stood in my blueberry field and promised me that The Greenville Plan was a moot point and for me not to worry about it.  Now he wonders why the people can't pay even more!  I want all these big spenders to check peoples' electricity bills, etc. and tell me that more taxes are not a problem, and after that I want them to compare their retirement and benefits with others.
