Dear Editor,

The ballots are in the mail, and we can only hope that enough property owners vote “no” on the property tax override.

It is unjust that a registered voter who is not a property owner is allowed to vote on this issue.

I attended a school orientation that was supposed to be for the purpose of welcoming the students and showing them the school, but it almost turned out to be a political rally.

To Mr. Riddile, I want to say that you need not fear for lack of everything you are used to having in the schools. Look around you. There are new buildings going in everywhere, and the owners of those will have to pay taxes, thus increasing the amount of revenue received by the schools.

Besides, the mothers of the students that need more money to do sports, etc., are excellent at fund-raisers.

Let’s enjoy working for the fringe benefits. It will make you a stronger person.

Natalie Smith
