Urges ‘no’ vote on Lindbergh’s 65-cent tax increase

To the editor:

I, along with everyone else in the Lindbergh School District, received the Lindbergh Link Prop L propaganda pamphlet in the mail recently.

In very large letters, the main head-line read “A Cry for Help.” To make their point, it was accompanied with a graph showing a decrease in revenue of approximately 14 percent over four years from 2008 to 2011. What they failed to include in their graph was the revenue from the previous four years. My real estate taxes went up a whopping 46 percent. That’s right, 46 percent from 2004 to 2007.

I am sure most of the other residents’ taxes in the district also increased.

Lindbergh’s “haul” during these years had to go up somewhere by the same amount.

How can they be out of money already when they received such large increases from us? It’s time voters make school districts live in the same real world we do.

Vote “no” on Prop L.
