In this era of an austerity

In this era of an austerity budget everyone involved should do their part to keep our school district afloat. Parents have begun paying the costs of student activities and basic school supplies. Faculty is working without a new contract. Administration is continuing to be pampered with extra fringe benefits recently brought to the public's attention as well as pay increases, bonuses, and extended contracts. To ask parents, who are included in the taxpayer category, to vote for a tax increase is ludicrous under these circumstances.
