Yea! Voted for library only to see my real estate taxes take a $20,000 hike in appraised value with bad documents brought to everyones attention and still not resolved!

As a taxpayer, I think we have the right to insist someone not associated with PHS be appointed to oversee the funds. These funds have a specific list of what is necessary for repairs. Any further improvements not necessary should wait until they can raise funds for themselves. PHS should also be forced to use the funds they raised and borrowed first and only use as much of the $700K as necessary returning the remainder to the board.

Beware, there will come a day, maybe not in the near future, but there will be a day when Erickson is slated in the top stadiums in the state. They are still in the beginning stages for a lot improvements but PHS did not automatically appear complete. It had to start somewhere and I bet there was struggle there to.

Let's take our adult foolishness and keep it to ourselves. Our children only need to be taught to help whoever they can no matter what side of the river they live on.

The comment simply means that he knew the northside would find a way as we always have, whether it be through loans, fundraising, BOE, etc. No matter how bad the rest of you want to see it fall in, we will never let that happen.
