I am president of a large condo association with almost 600 units. We are raising assessments 2 percent after three years of no increases.
State and local governments, school districts and library districts, like condo associations, need to manage on what they get from the people and not look to the people as a trough from which they can eat their fill.
The library and school districts did not make good cases for needing the money (if they did, the people would have approved the measures). I think most people feel that their administrative salaries and costs are outrageous, and they haven’t shown enough effort to operate efficiently.
The districts already are generously supported by the taxpayers and have to get their houses in order before asking the people for more money.
