Mitch McKinley voices concerns on spending of tax money

About: Amazing attitudes toward nickel tax quarter gas premium


I would like to know if anyone has ever figured out exactly what the school system takes in each year from all the taxes and state funds they get. They already have a tax added on to several things. It's not fair that the people who don't own property or have insurance don't pay for their kids' education. I am all for education but but just like the justice center; why do we need granite floors and plush fixtures to send a criminal up the creek.

They bought out 3 tax paying businesses to build the center so the rest of us would have to pay more taxes to make up the difference. Wasteful spending, with no after thought to the outcome. They should have bussed the children to the county schools instead of selling them until a new school was built. Then new land wouldn't have to be purchased. If they were spending their own money I assure you they would do it a lot different.
