It’s obvious to the most casual observer that the children are the future of this country. The residents of the City of Oak Grove, MN would not allow me to continue as Mayor if I announced that we are going to raise everyone’s city taxes 10 percent, we have ideas where we may want to spend it, but once we take the money, (from you) we’ll figure out where it will go. Why is it that more and more parents are homeschooling or sending their kids to private school and yet pay and pay and now asked to pay more for public school education for 20 years? Do you think there will never be another public school tax increase? No more school referendums? When is someone going to ask the important questions, like, what happened to the money we already gave you? HOW MUCH MONEY IS ACTUALLY GOING DIRECTLY INTO THE CLASSROOM? Please listen to the full interview I gave to the reporter from the Star and Tribune. Thanks!
