My local Canyon Independent School District, in Comal County, Texas, has a proposal for a $451 Million Bond on the ballot in November.
“”The fast-growing district’s Nov. 5 ballot initiative is more than double its largest past bond issue, a $205.8 million package approved in 2008. Its size, and a lack of specifics on when new campuses will open, is drawing criticism.””
Out of the goodness of our hearts, Texas’ voters have agreed to “freeze” taxes for our neighbors over 65 years old. Will we be repaid by Seniors’ voting for every tax hike that comes along? Our grand-children will be paying for this bond, whether or not we will. We owe those future young adults our best judgment and our restraint.
