An article from the Mackinac Center for Public Policy. I’m quoted:    https://www.michigancapitolconfidential.com/59-percent-say-no-to-school-tax-hike-18-months-later-its-back

NOT THIS BOND:https://www.gpresponsiblespending.com/10_reasons_to_vote_no_not_this_bond

Grosse Pointe schools are also using the “schools are not safe” approach……


Pushing the bond tagline again on the scoreboard at the Dakota/ Chippewa football game…..



October 8  UPDATE: Townhalls are not very well attended so far averaging 10 cars or so….also happening  are live telephone calls by the district to voters see how many supporters they will have on November 6th.

BIG DEBT ; NO BOND. Tell Ron No bond 2.0

How do we dream up ways to spend 97 million dollars?? Remember who makes up these “project “sheets.  Barton Malow and Wakely Assoc.  work on a no-bid basis and make$$$ millions and millions off these “projects” . Take a look at the allowable uses for Bond money before browsing the lists. They finely craft the wording. For the last bond attempt just over 1 year ago, Ron Roberts Tweeted they needed to fill potholes in the parking lots. Bond money usage  restrictions say you can’t do that. So instead they’ll claim they need to “replace” huge sections. Barely anything on these lists are for increasing “school safety”.  $500 Door locks? Where are they shopping for these things? Cameras, which they already have. The safety topic was dreamed up to help package the rest of the fake stuff and get this back on the ballot. Notice the proposed year format.

Here is a link to BLUEPOINT  safety alert system which is mentioned in these project sheets:  https://www.bluepointalert.com/education/

Not very expensive but packaged with the other extraneous items. They could install just this feature with the 2 million dollars still left from the last bond. Why hasn’t it been done already?

Here we go, not in any particular order: Mohegan, Admin Bldg, Little Turtle and Maintenance.
