In case you’ve a) been living under a rock b) don’t care, you might not realize/remember that there is a monumental election coming up next month.
On September 15, Fayetteville voters will be asked to vote FOR or AGAINST a millage increase to build a new, 21st Century Fayetteville High School.
Those in support say that a FOR vote means not only a vote in favor of an up-to-date educational facility for children and teachers to thrive, but also a show of support for building a solid foundation for Fayetteville’s economic future to attract new businesses and good-paying jobs.
Those against the millage increase are either upset about the location of the school, think the price tag is too high, would prefer a second school be built or feel they’ve been Taxed Enough Already.
