We consider the Madison Schools referendum question
on next month's election ballots to be extremely important.
We will offer our opinion on the question after meeting
with school officials next
week, and we'll have Superintendent
Cheatham and a school board member on For The Record
in a couple of weeks as well.
It's important all of our votes are informed votes.
To that end as well we bring to your attention two
informational sessions the district is hosting that
will include both presentations on the request by
the district to permanent exceed state-imposed spending
limits, and a question and answer session.
The first is this Thursday at La Follette High School,
and the second is Thursday the 27th at Memorial High
Like all of you, we are balancing the needs against
But we believe the health of our schools and the welfare
of our kids hang in the balance.
Let's get ready to make a good decision.
