By Dawn King, Parker County TEA Party –
Why Vote NO for the WISD BOND?
Because we are Taxed Enough Already!
Maybe you have heard the comment, “why would anyone vote against the children”? Let me be clear, I’m not voting against the children, I’m casting myself as a guardian against excessive spending. Weatherford families and small businesses are facing difficult times, and now is not the time to make matters even worse by asking taxpayers to pay for a $107,320,000.00 Bond.
Safety and Security are being campaigned as the Number 1 reason we need the $107,320,000.00 Bond.
Total cost: $4,743,127.00. – That’s only 4% of the $107,320,000.00!
$7,229,555.000 for a new Baseball and Softball Complex at WHS
$2,255,248.000 for an 8 Lane Track with Synthetic Turf & Practice Fields at WHS
$2,578,587.000 for “Athletic Repurpose & Renovations atthe 9th Grade Center
A total of $14,313,194.00 FOR ATHLETICS!
That is 14 MILLION that we would be paying interest on until 2043!
$17,618,946.00 – 9th Grade addition at the High School
$17,503,047.00 – Technology Center
$961,275.00 – Agricultural Facility
$4,435,420 – Transportation Facility
$5,075,585 – Maintenance Building
Let’s use our heads here. If safety is the issue then lets have a bond for safety. Not safety and everything on the WISD Superintendent’s wishlist.
Yes! We are Taxed Enough Already!!
About The Parker County TEA Party – The TEA Party Patriots of Parker County
We are a grassroots group of Americans united to share our common value – that the Constitution of the United States should be the governance of our land. It should not be re-interpreted or revised in meaning to meet the needs to special interests or political favors. We’re concerned about reckless overspending, unfair and punitive taxation, and the increasing lack of government constraints. We are peaceful American citizens that organize protests and rallies in Parker County, Texas. We’re not contained by any particular ideology or party, but strive to be a pluralistic and populist movement committed to Liberty, especially economic liberty.
