schools! Less money!
School Board has already begun the Red Plan by authorizing $59 million in bonds.
Itís not too late to slow down and scale back the Red Plan. LET DULUTH VOTE
wants to encourage compromise. If 1,500 eligible voters sign this petition the
School Board will have to put our question on the ballot. If it passes it will
be clear that voters want a smaller building plan.
Since we now know that Duluth is one of only three Minnesota school
districts that can authorize a mega-building plan without voter approval (and
the only district ever to do so) we are at the School Boardís mercy. This
petition and the referendum will give voters time to tell the School Board that
we expect them to compromise. Four school board members tell us no one ever
complains to them about the Red Plan. It's time to start complaining.
DULUTH VOTEís next Meeting is Tuesday, Feb 12th at 6:30pm at the Duluth
Heights Community Club. Please tell every one to come and pick up more
petitions. Return signed petitions
in the enclosed stamped envelopes. Questions? Call Brenda 390-7768
