I am angry. I read the latest railroading tactic of the Milton School Board to have a "public" vote at 6 p.m. on March 12 to purchase the Hawk Zone at a purchase price of $500,000. What if citizens are not available on March 12 or don't have transportation at that time or day? Their voice will not be heard. Why can't the vote be held during a regular election? We just had one and will have another in April.

I am not against the schools needed improvements. I am against the ways the school board is trying to accomplish its will rather than what the citizens tell the board they can afford. Money is spent on extras, such as parking lots. Left undone are buildings failing to meet ADA requirements, a swimming pool that needs repair, crowded hallways that don't allow for carrying backpacks and a school having a classroom in the basement. What would this $500,000 purchase? A building for batting practice! Come on, spend money on necessities that have been ignored for years.
