To the Editor:
Why is it Jack Franks and Bob Anderson seem to be the only ones who care about costs?
Don't the teachers, assistant teachers, superintendents, principals, school boards, township boards and the many, many other public employees have homes and tax bills of their own?
Why aren't they wholeheartedly supporting efforts, helping to find ways to reduce our costs? Are they protecting their turf, too busy submitting applications to other states, or do they think that savings should come from anyone else's budget but theirs?
The slick political players have two smooth answers: either "let's do a study" (and spend $75,000 more) or "I agree that we need to do something, but this bill isn't the way."
Keep up the good work, Jack and Bob – you might be our only hope.
