Today is voting day “Runoff Election Day” and I am in search of those who have yet to cast their ballots. I urge all to make wise choices. Specifically, do not vote for ill informed candidates (in my area that would be Mary Lou Bruner who is running for a place on the State Board of Education) (article). Vote for Kevin Ellis, then boost it by getting others to vote for him. He will serve us well. read more arw

Gainsville:  School board calls for tax ratification election

May 2408:33 AM
 

A tax ratification election was called for to help provide a pay raise to teachers during Monday’s Gainesville Independent School District board of trustees meeting.  The TRE had to be called after the board unanimously approved to increase the district’s current maintenance and operations tax by 12 and a half percent, according to Superintendent Jeffrey Brasher.  However, the election is just “swapping pennies” and no taxes are actually being raised, school officials said. The TRE seeks approval to take 13 cents from the interest and sinking balance and move it to the maintenance and operations balance.  Currently, GISD’s M&O is $1.04 and their I &S is at 24 cents for a total of $1.28 per $100 valuation of property. If the TRE is approved by voters, the M&O would increase to $1.17 and the I&S would decrease to 11 cents. The total value would stay the same at $1.28 per $100 valuation of property.  view article arw
