While in Galena this past week, I noticed a sign like none other I have seen.
Actually, there were two of them.
Two candidates each for the local school board.
Above was the slogan,
No Means NO
Asking what it meant at the antique mall near Galena Territory, I learned that last November a large bond issue had been defeated. The man said it was for $36 million and the alternative to building a new high school was $9 million to repair it.
Not a tough choice, he indicated.
Looking into it before writing this, I found that the referendum was for $24 million. (You can find what was on the ballot here.)
And now four candidates seem to be running on the platform on not putting that bond referendum on the ballot again.
