The voters in the Edwardsville school district voted Roosevelt out before, and the arrogent board reappointed him. He was the only person the voters said they did not want on the school board. They are responsible for the district’s $131million debt and placing us on the Sate of Illinois financial watch list.
That debt must statutorily be paid and essentially places a tax lien on every property into the school district. For an average house worth $200k, the current debt represents a lien of $7,300 on that property. Every property owner in the district owes a part of that debt and for many families, it is simply too much.
It is time for change. We demand fiscal accountability and ethics from our elected and, in Roosevelt’s case, appointed leaders.
