  1. Didn’t she foul up a $25000 grant application with the county board to operate this bus, thus causing the taxpayers to pick up yet another cost?

    Nice to see that this application was completed on time, though someone will have to pick up the extra costs.

    Maybe she can charge the difference to the township credit card.

  2. Actually, the trustees refused to allow her to even apply for the senior grant.

  3. Part of me wants to gripe at an unabashed hand-out to a powerful voting constitutency, but, you know what, all those seniors at Sun City pay into the schools and get nothing out of them.

    They might as well get something for their money.

  4. john_d I am assuming when their children were of school age, someone without kids was likewise paying taxes that supported the schools.
