Why this petition?    ( How to help )

More schools!   Less money!

The 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.

LET 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
