Why would we not pass this? We all attended those old, run down, junky elementary schools when we were kids and they were bad then!! How can you not want the youth of Marshall to attend new and better schools. Plus that will help bring people into Marshall! And no I do not have kids, so this will not affect me personally but I don't see why you vote against the kids. So it's an extra $.80 per hundred, i have an avg priced house in town and i figured it up to costing me $60 a year extra. A measly $60 bucks for an entire year, that's $5 a month or one extra value meal fro McD's. So if you can eat one less meal at McD's than you can afford to improve the place our youth will be educated....that seems like a pretty common sense vote!!!
