Vitti’s proposal for a technology bond:
Jason Fischer, another board member, said he
believes in Vitti’s high-tech vision but he wonders if there are better ways to
pay for it than via a general revenue bond, including finding money in the
district’s regular budget.
the district guts its secretarial and security pool. That’s on the street with no
benefits to pay for Vitti’s plans, plans that Fischer has voted for.
that could be stopped or a bad a plan out there then I wish Fischer would bring
it to our attention.
Fischer is taking the notion that being a school board
is a part time gig to all new heights. His out of touchness (yes I know I just
made up that word) is stunning.
Update: I received the following note from Mr. Fischer and as someone who has been misquoted/taken out of contest by the TU, I find what he says completely plausible, I do however also disagree with Mr. Fischer and think the time is right and the need is great for a bond.
The TU never called me about the story. They are referencing a brief conversation that happened at a workshop over a month and a half ago. The fact is that we didn’t have a detailed conversation around this issue. There was strong push back against the idea of doing a bond. I very specifically said that the public was not ready for a bond, and that I was against raising taxes.
