Tax extension not a new tax

Dear Editor,

Do these people have children?

Do they realize that it is not a new tax and nothing will change in the way of the amount they are spending? The way this county is growing our schools will not hold them.

Would they rather see the children in a classroom trailer or a building, or even worse, having to have teachers team-teach, which means 30 to 40 children per class room?

I don’t like paying taxes either, but these are not new taxes, just a continuing one.

It only means we will be able to keep building to try to keep up with the growth of this county.

Please think before you vote no. Your children’s education depends on it.
