It is not my fault our money was spent on business welfare and other stuff. I did not vote 4 them. C24: They need to put their energy and advertising to the state. What better place could the state money be spent?

The greatest generation was schooled in buildings less appealing than these portables and they turned out just fine. Pretty easy just to lay it all on the homeowner, like were basically "bank of America" with cash for the taking.

If minot and ward county don't correct their spending addiction, a disaster could leave us like chicago--bankrupt. It is time 4 modesty in spending of tax money. Vote no and tell our state reps we need the state to pay--after the request is for a school and not a showplace.

The schools are on the hotline tonight, begging everyone they call to vote yes for higher taxes.

Seems awful funny how they think everyone, whether they can afford it or not, should pay for everyones kids, not just your own, its your job to pay for all kids, the rest of your life.

These poor kids cant learn without new walls around them, give me a break, whats that say to kids.

In other words, don't strive for better things kids, the government will take care of you, or should I say property owners.

Socialism is a dependency disease!

JA: exactly. I don't want our children left with unbearably high taxes and i know they will thank me for it. I want our city to stop the "entertainment city" drive because it involves too much corporate welfare and tax money. Do you make money when company drops in? Neither do most of us from hostefest, state fair etc. Those things cost all of us extra money from wear and tear on the city infrastructure. a few make money on them at our expense.

You do realize this will only be the first quarter. I would expect they know this one goes up in smoke so they come back with one half as big for June.

Good comment Chas. Vote No and our children will thank us when they become homeowners and taxpayers.
