District 58 School Board Seeks $2,810,000 Taxable Bond Issuance, Skirts Public Referendum

Scott O’Connell, former School Board Member, gives testimony as a taxpayer advocate to the District 58 School Board.

The community faces $2,000,000 dollars in increased debt burden over-and-above a voter- approved ballot initiative because members of the Board are too afraid of the likely response from the community!

A back-door referendum is not the same as a direct question placed on the ballot.
By using this sneaky method, the District 58 Board will not have to directly ask the voters for permission to raise taxes.
