Letter to the Editor: Is 113 Board Misleading Voters?
Reader criticizes ordering or priorities and expenditures.
To the Editor:
I received the mailer sent by the District 113 Board encouraging a vote for the referendum. It is interesting to note that the first of the five key referendum improvements is "Expansion of school security". A detailed review of the glossy mailer however reveals that the amount allocated to security improvements is $1.9 million dollars; a mere pittance compared to the $30.8 million dollars allocated to swimming and gymnastic facility expenses. Would it be too cynical for me to believe that the Board is playing on recent public emotions to push their expensive and perhaps scholastically unnecessary agenda
