So Matthew Ladner is saying the problem in AZ is us old people. He's postulating there are too many of us drawing down the state coffers, leaving no money for schools. FALSE. We're here paying taxes, which are then used by the legislature to give tax breaks to corporations.
TUSD is under court orders to do certain things that cost money. Not all of its spending can be compared to other school districts without these constraints. Huppenthal's comparing apples to oranges.
Smokescreen? He's just trying to cover all bases. He'll vote to defund.
District 1 deserves a representative who examines the issues, talks to stakeholders, analyzes the financial implications, then takes action that is good for ALL the constituents rather than special interests. Nancy Young Wright has a track record of doing just that. She will be a steady, reasonable supervisor who will help move this county forward.
