I appreciated the efforts of the Citizens in Support of Our Schools to convey clearly to the voting public why the school levy fore district operations should have been passed. Schools Superintendent Ann McVey said that she believed the results of the levy vote were more indicative of the economic times than people's perception of the success of the district. These economic times brought out what are too often strongly felt emotions against school levies.
The leader of these emotions based on misinformation and deceptions was Mr. Robert Maurer, key force behind Citizens for Financial Responsibility. The implication behind the campaign of this negative group was, apparently, to suggest that the BG school administration was not being fiscally responsible. Members of the Board of Education as well as Superintendent McVey published letters and documentation to show how totally financially responsible the district has been.
Taxpayers in the district share the monies assessed for school levies to benefit educational needs of the students and their teachers. Too often levies are voted down based on inaccuracies and, in particular, selfish interests.
