…voting on issues unrelated to education to improve the education at their schools.
As you know the Rockin’ Conservative believes that state, local, and federal revenues should be gathered through taxation of consumption — not the myriad of income, realty, and personal property taxes currently employed.
To that end, the Rockin’ Conservative has joined on with United For Missouri and Let The Voters Decide to enact a Citizens Initiative Petition abolishing Personal Income Taxes in favor of a Consumption Tax.
Today, we find out that the New Bloomfield School Board will vote on a resolution in disapproval of this Citizens Initiative Petition. Thanks to Beverly Martin of Missouri Fair Tax for the ‘heads up’.
The average New Bloomfield ACT score in 2011 was 19.90. Unimpressive (Read here). Perhaps they could work on meeting all 15 of the MSIP APR Measurements instead of just 12.
It seems that the School Board of New Bloomfield would better serve their constituents by working to improve those scores… …instead of working to disapprove of a Citizens Initiative Petition. The Rockin’ Conservative asks you to contact the school to remind them to focus on improving the education they provide!
But, if they must, ask them if they have contacted the above proponents of the initiative to hear their side of the story. Or, are they making this vote without all the facts? Ask them, considering that State Auditor Tom Schweich won’t even weigh in, how did they come to the conclusion that they should disapprove of the initiative!
The phone number at the school is 573-491-3700.
The School Board will meet to vote TONIGHT!
