No Surprise There

From the Wichita Eagle (September 7): “Economy could be hurdle for Wichita bond issue.”

The article focuses on the state of Oregon, focusing on a PR firm that has done a lot of work trying to get bond measures passed. (Aside: Why is taxpayer money being used to … lobby the public to pay more in taxes?)

Here’s one part of the article:

“Wichita’s bond plan, the state’s largest [$370 million], would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $42.55 more in property taxes annually, includes $137 million for new schools. But bond supporters and opponents have both focused the discussion on $61 million proposed for athletic upgrades and $17 million added last month for technical education.”

Both comments and trackbacks are currently closed.
