Take a chance on tax, or sit on hands


TAHLEQUAH — The fact is that we have a city that needs improvement for the drivers, kids and people who live here and also those who visit. Schools should stand on their own and should keep their hands out of the public money, wherever it comes from. I would suspect the million dollars for arranging the bond election could be negotiated and leave out the bribes or money going back to city employees for their “help” in looking over the documents.

Zack said he would reluctantly vote no on the bonds, and I will reluctantly vote yes in the hope that we can get a lot of bang for the bond buck rather than just continue the tradition that Tahlequah has had in the past.

Some of the past elected officials had a habit of back-scratching and ego-building when it comes to city money, and hopefully we are past that. Let's fix the roads, make a nice place for the kids to play rather than going the drug route, and enhance the raw beauty we have in our little paradise in eastern Oklahoma.

We can either take a chance on the future or sit on our hands and assume the worst is going to happen.
