Letter | What is the pool doing in the school bond?

I am one of the majority of people who did not vote “yes” on the recent school bond. I did this because I thought it was too expensive and had too many items not related to the issue of overcrowding in our schools.

It appears that School Board still intends to include the cost of the upkeep of our local swimming pool in the new bond issue, and is even considering a multimillion dollar rebuild.

Since this is neither relevant to the core issue of school overcrowding nor excellence in education, if this expense is included in the next bond issue, I and others will be tempted to vote “no” again.
