Letter writer provides ‘the truth’ about Prop R

To the editor:

The truth about Mehlville schools: The leadership of Mehlville schools does not want taxpayers and voters to know the truth about their request for a tax increase.

• Why should homeowners shoulder the burden?

• They just hired a new superintendent at six figures plus. Doesn’t that sound like mismanagement of funds? This person has to be overpaid and underworked and not worth one red cent. Get rid of that slot. Let a committee of volunteers from outside the district manage this district. Or maybe it is time an outside audit be done on the entire district and clean up waste.

• The management is using more excuses than Reagan had jelly beans.
