White Lake referendum fails at polls

White Lake school officials are regrouping today after a stunning referendum defeat.

For the second time in seven months, voters in the White Lake school district have rejected attempts by the board of education to exceed state-imposed revenue limits.

Vote was 430 opposed to 405 in favor, a margin of 51 percent to 49 percent. The question also failed in April, 179 to 177.

How dumb can the opposed people be, while I realize that in increase on your taxes NO one appreciates, based upon the smallness of the school by having to cut over $200,000 out of the budget is HUGE. Obviously some people don't seem to care if you end up having to consolidate with Antigo. I know that one of the school board members personally would like to see the school close, obviously HE needs to get off the board because he certainly is not watching out for the best interest of the students.

While no body would like to see the school close, the community is sick of getting bullsh-t from fisher! All of these things that he needs to fix with the money, has needed to be fixed for a couple years now. Maybe instead of the new gym, he should look to priorities. I the community had known the problems in the school, noone would of voted for the new gym. He seems to be great with making 6 figures, while cutting everything else.
