Suddenly, people are waking up to the fact that our roads need repair! Where were these people five years ago when we had the chance to solve this problem by passing a primary property tax?

Most of the people who are grumbling about the roads now, voted against the solution. The same people also voted against the school bond and are shocked to discover that schools are being closed and we were facing the very real possibility of having no football or other field sports next year. Maybe we can raise the $60 million that is needed to fix our roads with bake sales, car washes and gofundme campaigns.

Some of these very people actually sit on our Town Council and School Board! One council member even supports a bill that would cause the town to lose millions of dollars of tax revenue. You have to wonder what the end game is.

These anti-taxers want to cut our income, slash our budget and repair our roads, but we haven’t heard how that’s going to work. Where’s the plan for making deficits equal a windfall?
