clearlystated: I'll give you this: You have clearly stated your opinion and confirmed one I made earlier. You and those who share your opinion reject public funding for schools. That rejection is not reserved for Marco Island. Studies and polls have shown what you write to be true statewide. You no longer have school age children or never had them and feel no obligation to the parents of your community. You have a right to feel that way. As a retired citizen however, your responsibilities to the rest of our great nation did not end when you stopped working. The rest of us must pay our taxes and accept the will of our political leadership to provide for our communitites. Some in Marco Island obviously take that opinion more seriously than you do. I am not going to restate why Marco Island needs a school because you already know why nor am I going to try and explain to you how your taxes benefit so many other projects that are targeted to the elderly, infirm and retired that younger folks must help pay for. Your question is a distraction intended to bait me. Communities throughout our country smaller and more economically challenged then ours, provide their children with an education grades K-12. We have a moral obligation to do the same and it is our continued duty as citizens to do so. You may choose your social group, party affilliation or church but as an American citizen you have a moral responsiblity to the welfare and safety of our entire community to include every citizen of the City you reside in.
