Think Again

YOU have more of an impact on how property taxes are spent than he does. Local elections have a far greater impact, like who's on the city council, who's on the school board, etc. Guess you forgot that my grandparents and parents continue to pay those property taxes even though their children have been out of school for years. I can say without a shadow of a doubt that what they've "contributed" far outweighs what it cost to educate me. As for how he got elected, he isn't the first and won't be the last to "get in" based on name recognition, what matters is that he like many of us believe in what Scott Walker's doing and as long as he continues to vote that way, he'll have my support.

By your way of thinking, anyone who isn't married with children and owns a business should be excluded from holding office. I'd argue the exact opposite, we need more people with diverse backgrounds that won't, as you put it, regurgitate YOUR point of view verbatim. Someone who just might have an opposing point of view and is willing to look out for the rights of people who don't fit into your mold, you know, someone who feels that simply throwing money at something isn't the answer to all problems. Look at MPS for example, do you really think just spending more money will result in better education?

And PLEASE, don't use that tired old "plight of the teacher" saga. I for one don't buy it. They're compensated very well, do some research and you'll see they have it better than MANY of those you claim to be in the same boat as you.
