Look into how much money the high ranking school administrators make. Its all BS.Anyone who votes to raise their own taxes is a moron. What ever happened to the lottery money that was supposed to go to the schools? Hmmm. They have 52 cops on the streets every night in Gilbert pulling people over crossing over the bike lanewhile making a right turn, and forcefully drawing blood from anyone who is involved in a traffic stop, regardless of the situation. Don't believe me? Don't think it would happen to you? Think again. Drive in this town after 11pm and see for yourself.It was never like this before, so maybe cutting that would help with the budget. The school officials skim so much off the top, that';s why there is no transparency. There is a math teacher at Gilbert Jr. High who can't do math to save her life, and I had to grade everything she graded becasue she didn't know right from wrong. Idiot. Maybe get rid of this useless nonsense and waste of taxpayer dollars.
Every year the budget comes. And when it comes to education the reoccuring "solutions" are pay freezes, larger class sizes and higher taxes. When I worked in the school district, waste was everywhere! You weren't provided pencils or reading books for beginning readers, but we did have the big fancy new interactive smartboards, that kept breaking down that cost thousands of dollars. They couldn't afford to fix the tile cleaning machine for the cafeteria or the vaccuums that keep the building clean, but we did have money for the shade structures in the parking lot. I am all one for improving schools, but priorities and spending need to be aligned, and balanced every year. I have never heard the word "audit" come out of any school/district employee ever as a suggestion to control the spending sprees.
The town threatened to cut police and fire if prop 406 did not pass. It didn't pass and not a single firefighter or police officer was cut, more were hired.
Efficiency is key. A no vote in November will put and average of $200 a year back into the bank account of each Gilbert homeowner.
