Lindsay Letter Valley View ISD Facts Ad coming out May 9, 2013.
The Fact Ads are based on Actual VVISD Documents. Some discussion
and links to the actual VVISD documents they reference can be found on the VVISD Tax Elections Tab and
the VVISD Bond tabs above.
Have you noticed the Ads and Letters supporting the VVISD Bond leave out the cost? Wonder why that is? Because it is huge
and will cost $6,800 in new taxes. Lindsay Letter Ad.
The above Ad references that the bond
supporters conveniently forget to tell you in their letters and ads how much the Bond will cost you, if passed.
Have you seen any of them mention a $12 Million Bond or $6,800 for a typical $100,000 home? What about
a tax increase of 32 cents per $100 valuation?
In Josh Brinkley's, (VVISD Board President), Letter
to the Editor in the Lindsay Letter dated May 10, 2013, he says "I doubt having a slightly
higher tax rate than our immediate neighbor to the south will impact growth." Does Mr. Brinkley's statement
lead anyone to think the VVISD Board which has called three elections to raise the tax rate since 2009 will
stop anytime soon?
