Mahkorn labels schools “in desperate need of repair.”

Why do I send my kids to a school “in desperate need of repair”?

5th district Alderman Gary Mahkorn joined 11 of 13 aldermen to support the high school referendum. Only 3rd district Alderman Ron Balzer and 1st district Alderman Bill Carnell did not jump on the sorry-schools bandwagon.

Pretty much the same list joined Mayor Jeff Speaker in supporting the last referendum, too. $108.8 million, $62.2 million, it’s for progress, by golly! No amount is too much.

    Not surprising that a community that maximizes the levy increase each year despite running million dollar surpluses would have many of their elected officials jumping on board for another tax increase.
