Regarding the Feb. 1 news article “Wake may skip voters to issue school bonds”: Wake County commissioners are worried that voters may not approve a massive transportation bond issue, so they are going to issue school bonds at a higher than needed cost to taxpayers.
Limited obligation bonds have a very real and material cost compared with voter-approved bonds. The commissioners are essentially asking taxpayers to foot the bill for their apprehension.
Perhaps they should focus on getting both bond issues approved by convincing us of their merits rather than use taxpayer money to prevent us from voting on the matter.
