I understand that only 15 percent of the electorate turned out for this school bond vote. That means only about 8 percent of the electorate decided that all property owners in the county need an $810 million debt added on to the billions that we are already on the hook for. This all resulting in a hefty tax increase on property owners.
I also wonder how many nonproperty owners voted to incur this debt for me. Maybe they would like my credit card, too. Why can’t government be “pay as you go” like the residents have to be? People need to vote. Voting, or not voting, has consequences.
