I think the easiest thing you could do is listen to your voters. If they vote down the exact same levy 3 times and you are yet again going to put it on in November clearly shows you're not listening to the people who got you there.

Bob Smith "I have reviewed the numbers multiple times and closing Wayne Elementary school will save the district close to $400,000, not $70,000 as some people believe. Once the exact numbers are sorted out, we will share that information as well.

We are in August and still have not seen the 400,000 sorted out. As of now the only money saved was the 70,000 it cost to run Wayne and since we lost 23 student who went to their home districts it cost us 82,800.Seems logical you close down a school to save 70,000 and then you lose an additional 82,800 that puts us negative 12,800. They came up with that 400,000 figure by saying they would have staff cut. That never happened. 4 aides were laid off unless they make 100,000 piece. It doesn't make sense.
