Letter to the editor: Longtime Tonganoxie resident concerned about bond issue

The board and administration did not make the decision to try a bond issue on a whim or without considering the tough economic times. Much thought went into this decision and they are very well aware of the economic issues of this time. The elementary school in particular is already greatly overcrowded. The middle school soon will be overcrowded if something is not done soon. The situation at the high school with students walking back and forth between buildings is not ideal or safe. Science labs at the high school are small and outdated. Projections are that Tonganoxie will continue to grow. The board and administration would not be doing their jobs if they ignored these issues or backed away from them due to the economy. It takes some courage to do what you think is best even if the current situation is not ideal. Ultimately, the voters will decide whether this is something that should be done at the present time.
