    EK is at it again! They banged away for YEARS to get an elaborate new campus that raised our taxes enormously. Now they need a levy to operate it? Shoulda thought of that when ya built it!

    A lot of the people who got this tax increase don’t even live here (Apple Valley) and had absolutely no say in the decision. Contrary to popular belief, not everybody who lives out here is rich. The first thing EK will cut is services that hurt the kids–busing, sports programs (that lead to scholarships), etc. because they know it will get the parents’ attention. When was the last time you heard of an administrator taking a pay cut? Also, ask them about their benefits package.

    Toni is right: When, excatly DOES no mean no?

    I will, AGAIN, be voting no. I don’t know why we must be hunted like animals when it comes to our property and income! When, excatly DOES no mean no? Just wonderng. EK just can’t get it throught their thick heads, we don’t have anything elses to give. Oh, I suppose we go start selling our plasma and/or blood! EK live within the means of what the district can afford, not what you wish you had. We’re sick of you!!!!!
