ELECTION CENTRAL: School bond issue soundly defeated; Peak, Bixby elected to council; Becker to join school board

It is a sad day for Tonganoxie! The grade school is still overcrowded. The city has just took two or three step backwards. I would think with the forward thinkers in this community that people would want to more forward.
Very Sad day for the school!
Very day for the City council!
Very Sad day for TONGANOXIE!!!!!

Bixby eyes spending cuts

Seriously, Mr Bixby has no clue on what needs that are important to the city. He is so wrap up in the school bond and the school. He thinks he knows what the school needs are and he is wrong on that. I wouldn't let him lead my dog on a chain more less the city!!!!!

Supporters say growth necessitates bond issue

Only1: I guess I should make myself clear. The 2010 Census came out not to long ago. It showed that the biggest age group of people that live here in our community is 45 yr and older. Most of these people do not have kids still in school. So this "older generation" are the ones that we need to convince to vote yes on this school bond . I don't concentrate myself over the hill yet... but I'm in this age group.
All I was trying to say was just encourage people with the fact of why we need to build a new school.
Most of the people that I have talked to is going to vote for the bond! Don't worry the people of Tonganoxie will do the right thing. Everyone know who hold our furture. Our kids!!

Supporters say growth necessitates bond issue

I have to chime in on this. I have lived here my whole life. I beleive that schools are important to the community. Kids and educating our kids is our future. My wife and I do not have any kids or grand-kid in our schools. But that does not mean that I will not support the school bond.
We are having a hard time making ends meet with the cost of living going up and our wages staying the same for last 4 years. But we will find a way to support the new school bond.
I will be the first one to say that I do not like my taxes to go up. That We pay enough Taxes.
To me.. what other surrounding area has done or is doing mean nothing to me or what there mill rates are. What truly matters is what my community is needing and what we can do to make it better for everyone!!
I do not like people putting down the older generation's. WE are the one that have built this community to what it is today!
The elementary school building is not a dilapidated building because they still plan on using it. Remember K-1st Grades
Remarks about how people spend their money is no ones business but their own.
I know you want the new school but Stay with the facts about why we need the new school. Stop with the remark that I have been reading and the school bond will have more support. Some of these remark has upset me and I support the school.
Oh.... about Dennis Bixby ... I will not be voting for him, but I will vote for the the school bond.
