Re: Aug. 20 referendum
My position is no more new taxes. The expansion of the (Sheridan College) Tech Center has merit, but not at the expense of putting another tax on the residents of Sheridan County. Regardless of the level of government (local, state, federal), new spending must cease; we can’t afford it.
If the college desires to expand a program or facility, let them acquire the funds through individual and organizational donations.
When the funds are acquired, pursue the expansion plans. Otherwise, no new taxes and no spending unless the funds are “in the bank.”
Remember, to stay home and not vote is a “yes” vote for the bond and an additional tax burden on all residents of Sheridan County.
