We previously endorsed this tax increase because we share their desire for the biggest government possible. The Princeton Schools currently spend $15,922 per student per year. This makes them the 10th biggest spending public school district in Ohio out of about 613 school districts, which means Princeton already outspends over 98% of Ohio school districts. How can they be #1 if they don't raise taxes?
As the numbers prove, this tax increase is extremely necessary. If this property tax hike doesn't pass, the Princeton Schools will only be able to outspend 98% of other school districts. That's not good enough. This levy must pass so Princeton somebody can be the absolute biggest spenders in Ohio.
Our good friend Mayor "Royal" Doyle Webster observed,
"But if we don't pass it, it will impact property values."
Absolutely. Property values will fall through the toilet if Princeton only gets to outspend 98% of other school districts instead of 100%.
If you disagree, it's because you hate children. Only a child-hater would oppose such an important tax hike. Because we love children, we love higher taxes. It is only through higher taxes that Princeton can fix its underspending problem. We applaud tax hiker Royal Doyle Webster and the Springdale City Council for their unwavering dedication to higher taxes and big spending.
