Failed school referendum was huge act of arrogance

Boscobel, Wis.


I know that a lot of people will probably just think, “Oh my gosh, another stupid referendum letter,” but I just want to say that I have never been more disappointed in my community than I am right now.

Last year, I was fortunate enough to graduate from Boscobel High School. I loved my time there, and some days I wish that I could go back. Now, I have two sisters that will be taking there journey through high school, and I wish them nothing but the best. One night in the Boscobel Bowling Alley, Jim Trumm told me what was going on at the school, and he told we how important this referendum was. I completely beleived him and thought to myself, “Wow, this is very important. I really need to vote on this issue.”

Since I was in college, it was really hard to vote, but I was able to get an absentee ballot, and I was able to vote. And now, after the election, I see that the school did not get the referendum.

All I can say is “WOW.”

I know that I don’t personally pay taxes, but if I did, I would give almost anything to see that school become improved. A small raise in taxes is SOOOO worth it to fix this much needed issue. If people are too blind and egotistical to see this, then society has really gone to hell. I only hope that these kids do not regret going to Boscobel Schools.

Prayers to all the families that are affected by this huge act of arrogance!
