Don’t use taxpayer money

November 3, 2013

Editor:


The recent action of the county school board to donate $4,000 to the political activist group called School Boards Action Center is the wrong thing to allow. It is plain and simple a lobbying group for teachers in this state.


Educators have every right to advocate for their interest to the legislature but NOT WITH TAXPAYER MONEY .


We in agriculture donate OUR OWN money for the trade organizations representing our interests like the Pork Council or Poultry Federation . Our elected officials need to be much more careful in spending our tax money. They don’t have a right to use OUR money to support THEIR special interests.


The taxpayers in this county are being bullied by political activists under the pretense of “needing a voice.”
