I voted no for the District 97 referendum. Contrary to the line that those of us against increased spending don't value kids/education/arts, I'd like to go on record and say that that is not true. I just think spending has gotten out of control.
To all the yes voters I pose these questions: When is the right time to say no? When do we say the coffers are empty (or getting there fast), we value all of the above and reform is necessary? When do we go to the table and start making the tough choices? I am sincerely looking for informative answers.
