|To the Editor: Non-resident of BG is upset by school's income tax levy|

Here we go again, Bowling Greens Board of Education in its infinite wisdom has unanimously voted to go with a five year income tax levy rather than a property tax or a combination of the two, because the board president says the residents "were not as positive." "They were very negative for the property tax."
Well, of course they were, make others help pay for the schools. Simply because I work in BG and live in McClure I don't even get to vote on it! Our revolution was fought because they endured "Taxation without representation." But I have no voice, I will pay an additional .75% of my check if it passes won't I?
Once again the average "Joe Taxpayer" is being hornswaggeled by a small group of people that has yet to provide the voting public on a breakdown of where the money will go. And I don't mean "well we have to pay for this and that and there you have it", we need a comprehensive list printed in the Sentinel-Tribune before the election of where they intend to spend it, we have the right and deserve it as taxpayers! Don't insult our intelligence school board members. You have plenty of time to get the information gathered and provide it to the Sentinel-Tribune, as a matter of fact it should have been done already.
