As a grandmother, I learned long ago that just because you desire something, if it is not within your budget, you cannot acquire it. With many other senior citizens, I voted "no" for additional school bonds. We raised our children and helped them when they started their families. I do not feel any obligation to pay more taxes for more schools or elaborate school facilities (e.g. a state-of-the-art, $9-million theater).
The schools I attended in upstate New York years ago were adequate, certainly not fancy, and my education enabled me to go on and hold good jobs so that I could be independent.
I resent Shirley LaFeve's comment about "seniors who don't think past their own noses." Maybe she does not exist on minimum retirement income.
If the developers in this area want to continue building thousands more homes, let them be responsible for additional school facilities. If parents do not want to limit the number of children in their families, maybe passing fees per student would limit overcrowding schools. At age 80, I cannot continue paying for more schools when my own medical insurance and other living expenses continue to escalate.
If officials aim to persist bringing up school bonds for a vote, I suggest that we seniors be exempted from additional tax.
