RSCS Reunion - August 20-22 2010

RSCS Budget questioned

I am sympathetic with RSCS School Administration in their efforts to grapple with the budget during times of rising costs and declining enrollments. As a retiree, paying a significant sum in local school taxes, with over a 30 percent loss in personal life time invested earnings, I must live on significantly less income and make the difficult choices that many retirees face.

For the RSCS administration to say they hope to keep the increase to 2 to 3 percent, leaves many of us wondering why they canít or wonít make the difficult choices to eliminate those programs we can no longer afford and are not absolutely necessary for a quality education.

This smacks of the State and Federal government attitude that budgets can only rise at the expense of the taxpayer. History reveals that when taxes reach an unbearable state, revolution has followed. We neednít let this happen in our country at this time.  Letís show some real leadership and courage, and live within our means.

Donald A. McKay. P.E.
