Got another mailing about the vote today. Each one reminds me why I am voting NO; so they are serving a purpose.

Many minot children live in a home that looks like a portable but a portable is not good enough 4 them? Their taxes would increase for their school to be nicer than their home. Vote no.

It is likely the state told the western cities with school needs, they must first hold a vote to see if their local counties would pay for more schools and if that fails, the state would pay. Vote No because too often they ignore our opinion and spend money on their pet projects.

When Laura something, a school board member, said we need to pass it because a 10 year old boy reported that he does not attend Washington, but a portable and then said if it fails they will need to do some redistricting next year; it seems to me that between those statements and Vollmer's 'we won't spend it if we don't need it' we need to send a strong message of "NO, you need to go back to the drawing board."

Our city,county,state governments need to teach ethics for their workers. their jobs differ from private sector jobs because they are paid from public tax money. they must not use any public resource to express their opinion on a issue up for public vote. They cannot promote or sponser and private business with their public job or person. for a school worker to use the students to sell a school bond is a conflict of interest because the school worker gets a new facility if it passes. for a school worker to promote a business by other than shopping there, in their public capacity, is not ethical because public money is then used to promote private business. VOTE NO because the state has collected oil tax money for this very need in western ND oil impact cities.

Full PR campaign in effect, including mailings, pages in kids folders, on report cards and weekly articles. I'm voting No. This town would have a 10% sales tax if they could. Keep it local, while state hordes

Tally all of these school bond issues and it could be paid for within a few months with State oil royalties. Not saying the schools don't need improvments and they are all great ideas but State oil money needs to pay for this.

I am so tired of hearing about the bond issue. Apparently the schools have been busy brainwashing their students over the bond as well. My nine year old came home from school and was told that if the bond issue passes, they will get a bigger playground. My high school aged son is constantly told at school to make sure to go home and tell your parents to vote for the bond. Seriously? Can the citizens of Minot not make up their own mind without the school system brainwashing our children over it? Even if I was not already voting no on the issue, I would definitely being voting no now because it's being pushed down our children's throats.
