It’s budget time all across
Take a look.
As a public service to Franklin citizens who read my blog and pay exorbitant taxes, let’s check out what our elected school board members in Franklin are saying publicly about what every taxpayer deserves to know: information pertinent to next year’s school budget.
The head man. The guy in charge. The leader.
Public statements about the school budget: NONE
Comment publicly about school taxes?
I have not one, but two blogs. On my FranklinNOW blog, I won't say BOO now that I'm elected.
On the Franklin School District website, I said, "In order for success to be realized, open communication between citizens, the Board, and the administration is essential."
Hey, that's wonderful, isn't it.
What does Janet Evans, the former never-shy, now turned Barney have to say about the budget?
Do you hear crickets?
But you can always talk with her eminence 20 minutes before any meeting.
She may not say a word until 2012.
Nothing so far.
Oh. They'll talk for sure, right around October when they vote to jack up your school taxes. Between now and then, I'll bet they avoid any such discussion.
If I'm so wrong (and so terrible) prove me wrong and say something, anything. Don't do it for me. Do it for the taxpayers.
