This morning after I got home from the Patriots United Pro-Life Breakfast, the phone rang.
It turned out to be a robo-call from Erik Sivertsen.
He talked pretty fast and I only got fragmentary notes, so I tracked down the source, advertiser ReachFly, and asked for the copy, which appears below:
Did you know that MCCs Board of Trustees voted to raise tuition by 9% last Thursday?
Did you know that in that same meeting they approved nearly $4.5 million in additional spending?
Rather than take cost cutting measures to avoid a shortfall in next year’s budget they took the easy way out and just increased tuition.
I think this was a horrible decision.
Every citizen in District 528 is having to make changes to cope with these tough economic times and I believe the schools should do the same.
My name is Erik Sivertsen and I am running for MCCs Board of Trustees in the April 5th election.
