Any A2 politicos out there willing to go out on a limb and make a guess as to whether the proposed WISD millage will pass or fail and share with us why you think so? The WISD millage poll on the site is almost too close to call, with over 500 votes in. From the poll data, it appears as though the small percentage of undecided voters will, literally, decide when they go to vote.
I’ll go out on a limb and predict the millage will fail by a slim margin, by perhaps as little as between 1-2 percent of the total vote. I believe that voters will cite the hike in taxes during hard economic times as the main reason for voting against the millage.
Anyone else care to chime in?
