Weekend Poll: Do You Support the WISD Millage?
On Tuesday August 4th, a day that may live in infamy, depending on your political perspective, the The Washtenaw Intermediate School District’s school board formally voted place a 2-mill enhancement millage on the November 2009 ballot. Each of the county’s 10 traditional school districts’ school boards passed resolutions asking the WISD board to support the millage. If approved by voters, the 2-mill tax would raise about $30 million each year for the next five years for the school districts, but Ann Arbor would receive the lion’s share of the money, more than $11 million dollars per year. After five years, the tax would expire unless the WISD came back to voters and requested a renewal.
So, politicos, how generous are you feeling these days? Flush with dough? Ready to spend it on WISD? Are you a supporter of the proposed millage?
Ironically, I was one of the registered voters who got a call from the WISD’s surveying company a couple of months ago. The thrust of the call was for the WISD marketing mavens to figure out how the WISD could best “market” the millage to voters to get their approval.
Alas, “Hell No!” was not a response to any of the questions I was asked. It is in this poll.
You know where I stand. So, where do you stand on the tax increase to support the WISD?
