I have been reading all the articles, blogs, and commentary posted by Bob McQuillan and his band of disciples, and while I too think taxes are too high, firing the School Board is not the way to solve the issues we face.
I know everyone always wants to find a bad guy in everything, but in this case, there are no bad guys. Just concerned citizens who are just trying to do what is right for our community. If the board at the time had had a crystal ball and could have predicted the economic downturn that was about to occour, then I highly doubt anyone would have voted for for the referendum. Even the board would have postponed any referendum until such time that the economy turned around. After all, they are taxpayers, too. Not just Mr. McQuillan.
Also, where was Mr. McQuillan when all the information was being distributed? Why did he and his group stop the referendum? Because it is easier to complain after something happens than to get involved at the time of the event. Or, better yet, get elected to the School Board and do something about it. He appears to have so many facts and ideas, why not put them to good use and replace the incompetents with his obvious solutions? That way we can put this behind us and just enjoy our community as it was meant to be.
I believe there were many, many forums prior to the vote, and the ones I attended had virtually no one at them.
Hmm, where were all the no voters then?
