I think your right, we need to take a stand on this. Here are a few thoughts I've had on the matter. I believe the reason they hired someone for $12,000 is so when it comes to her recommendation to reconfigure Hilltop, Dave Johnson can point to that and not take the heat for it. Why should someone who has nothing invested in our communities have so much say(or any)in this matter. I for one would not have supported the referendum if I had known this was coming. Now I feel we are paying all these extra taxes and we're getting the shaft. They would have never tried this before that vote. I do believe this would have a major impact on Henderson, if you were a new family moving to the area would you move to a town with a two grade school? This also means if someone wants to sell their house it might not sell as quick or be worth as much, but our taxes will still be high. Doesn't quite seem right, does it? One other thing I'd like to mention, why are we as a school district always cutting when we have a big surplus that just keeps building? I mean it is a good thing to have a reserve, but I hear it's quite a sum and it's ours and we just keep getting less. They always say they want to do whats best for our children, but it really comes down to the almighty dollar! I think Hilltop has provided a fine education for our children, so tell me again, why do they want to change it?
