School Board should cut salaries before increasing taxes

To the Editor:

Well, they are at it again. The school board is planning to raise our taxes again. At a time when people are losing their homes, farmers are losing their farms, it seems a very foolish thing to do.

You may say it’s only a cent and a half, but somehow these small increases have added up until over half of my property tax bill is for school taxes.

We had to cancel my wife’s hospital insurance because the premiums got so high. We are only hoping and praying we’ll make it to Medicare. But I am helping to pay the salaries of teachers, some of whom are probably being overpaid, and a superintendent who for sure is being overpaid.

Maybe an economics class would be appropriate. When times get hard, tighten your belt. Trim a little pork.

I, for one, am fed up. You are bleeding the people, many of whom are in much worse shape than you.
