The Nedrose and south prairie construction is for high schools and will do nothing for the elementary population in Minot. Next year more elementary students will be bused to Bell.

Ihonestly think it's time for the City to restructure itself with a full time mayor, full time employees for each division from planning to finances to merging the Community Foundation with the MADC and drop the tax dollars of from MAGIC Fund in addition it's time to get rid of these volunteer committees and get more dollars and fairness for all of our needs here in Minot. Other communities similar to Minot do it why can't Minot?

Still paying the NAWS tax and not a drop of water from Lake Sakawea yet, the Magic fund has long outlived it's usefulness if it ever had a use. Until some of these special interest taxes are gone there should be no more. Perhaps if the school board and the superintendent could manage resources better there wouldn't be this election wanting more money.

Instead of a special election for this tax increase, hold the vote at the same time as the November midterm elections so that we can do a bit of house cleaning at the same time.

Vote NO! Same old B.S. story. Sorry Jim and the Board, get your spending under control and you would have the money to build without an increase in taxes.

Vote no! Too many questions! Why are the property owners responsible for schools in the base? Our children cannot attend these schools! Why does Eric Ramstad need additional security? It was just finished in November! Why currently are there four empty classrooms at Longfellow school? Redraw the lines and figure it out before asking for money that can be found elsewhere if we clean up the current city counsel members!
