Local air opinions on failure of package
Editor’s note This is the debut of a weekly feature designed to give you a chance to let your views be known Future topics will deal with local, state, national and international events.
By CINDY RICHARDSON Staff writer
Some local folks had a chance to voice their opinions on why the the recent New Braunfels Independent School District's $9.3 million bond issue failed.
That bond issue, which was voted down February 12, would have financed a wide variety of improvement* at existing schools, a new elementary school, air conditioned of all facilities and a new administrative office, among other items.
Many people questioned did not know a great deal about the topic, and this seems to support the idea bv some
that lack of information caused the issue to be voted down. Those who did know what it was all about told us the following:
"I suspect there was not enough public information to document the needs," said Rev. R.W Bizer. who lives in the Comal Independent School District "As far as I can see. the needs are there."
"I think it was a lack of information on the part of whoever runs these* elections. The information didn't get around much," Charlie Hoerig said I can’t understand it." said I mn Boa met, "As a former president of the school board. I am .strongly in favor of the improvements. I think, number one. not enough people got out to vote. And. number two, people didn’t understand the issue."
Some people thought tin* bond issue failed because of a lack of interest, but one woman disputed this. "I hate to say it vs as because of a lack of interest," said Kite Barber "I think
people arc interested, I think they are just disenchanted with politics right
Others attributed the failure to e onot11ic reasons "It was just such a large sum of money that I think it shocked people,” said one woman.
"I guess people didn’t want more taxes." said John M Manley.
"People were afraid their taxes would go up." Martha Fritsche said
"They asked fur too much all at once." said Elden Ketler. "It was too much for tile people of this district to handle." The same thing happened when fit* was living in Houston, he noted. That bond issue was originally voted down, but when it was broken down into smaller bond issues, each ended up passing It took several years, but the district got what it needed, fie said.
• Footnote NBISD trustees indicated Tuesday they planned to call a second bond issue for May 141.
