    People creating conspiracy theories make up people and lies to blame.

    This was brought by the school board. A group of parents raised it as a safety problem. This is how they decided to argue their point and own it.

    The Village Board is not convinced. Some voters are, some are not.

    Voting is the Villages business and now they hold the power. A referendum will help them decide. They have the final say.

    I think all of us are losing making Greendale look really bad.

    Maybe the school board will own their mistake and go and talk to the voters instead of all parents. Half probably don’t care about voting safety.

    How much time is being wasted on a non issue?

    What about putting the administrator brainpower to make the schools better and serving the Greendale public rather than dividing it?

  3. Nat

    The schools lost me when they asserted that in addition to voters being child killers, we are thieves and vandals with restraining orders. Voting is evidently very hazardous here. Is this Greendale or Afghanistan?

  4. Bob

    Well said. Finally, a voice of reason.
