Eva - I don't think an employee, especially a Principal of the district should be begging "please, please please" and telling the residents how critical the levy is. Shame on you! Lila - it is a sneaky levy - I haven't seen one sign. Can you or Eva explain this? It's NOT the same campaign as others.

The levy is extremely critical. As a student I have personally been impacted by the forced educational cuts made after these repeated failures. Cut the teachers salaries you say, well voting down an existing levy is not going to do that. If you want change, you should write or talk to the Board. Not satisfied with the Board, vote them out. Maybe you should run yourself since you’re so interested. You know Dave Tryon changed his opinion about the levy after he became part of the Board. Also this is not a “sneaky levy”. It was decided back at the April 26th Board Meeting that the levy would be on the ballot in August. A three month notice isn’t exactly “sneaky”. There are signs up, too. There are two signs up in my neighborhood. One of them is mine and the other is a community member that is not a teacher.

Noybegging, rather communicating the sense of urgency regarding passage of this renewal. Please do not misinterpret or misrepresent my comments if you are going to persist in taking a stand against an issue. There is no "shame" whatsoever in expressing my passion for the public education system or the education of ALL children.I, like you, have a voice and am free to express my opinions. I have no qualms about having a civil dialogue with someone who does not agree with my opinions.

Nick - I am very impressed with how your articulate you response. Very good job! However, you don't have the experience to understand what was done in the past. It's okay, you understand down the road. Right now, you don't understand budgets, free spending vs. controlled spending. I have not seen the Board control spending. The BBHSD levies are "for the children". In the past, if a levy fails, the ONLY people getting the brunt of cost cuts are the "kids" and their "parents". Administrators and teachers keep getting their money and keep asking for more. You may think I am wrong here, but wasn't there a levy on the ballot in May? How about this November? Will it ever stop? The answer, NO, even with a 'permanent' levy. Two signs? Enough said! Where are the signs as in the past? No one seems to answer this one. Eva - give me your best shot. Eva - apology - to me, your "please, please, please" looked like begging.

@Gallant - This is the last question I will answer from you until you agree to the terms of commenting on Patch. I believe the reason there are less signs posted for this campaign for 2 reasons. 1. There were less signs available to distribute as many of the signs from the previous elections were not returned or picked up. The reason being is that many were plucked from residential lawns at night. Now I call THAT is sneaky! I did check with both cities and the signs were not removed from anyone's lawn. 2. It's summer and a lot of people are checked out. I get that, however, the result could include less of an effort to campaign.
