Open Forum: Don't listen to the naysayers
Last Sunday, an Open Forum writer accused the Pequot Lakes School Board of trying to sneak the bonding vote through while the heavyweight taxpayers are absent. Nothing could be further from the truth. The simple fact is that Feb. 8, 2011 is the soonest that state law permits a bond referendum. And passing a referendum now would mean that construction could be completed by the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. Further delay would likely push completion back until the next year.
