Should Wyomingites have to EACH shell out $1500/year in additional taxation to cover the $400 million/year deficit in education funding? Can your family afford that? Here’s some of the revenue raising options. I think they’re all awful and don’t support any of them. Shouldn’t we look cutting back first? What do you think?
As you may well know, the consultants hired to work on K-12 funding re-calibration are holding public meetings. School districts are trying to stack these meetings with people who will support maintaining the status quo and will advocate for more revenue (taxes). While I didn’t receive the email CCSD#1 Superintendent Boyd Brown sent (screen shots attached for your viewing), 9000 parents and staff in Campbell County did. It obviously made some waves and our local paper picked up the story (below).
Your help is needed. Consider attending one of these meeting (times and locations are listed in one of the attachments) and speaking out yourself, and please spread the word to Wyomingites concerned about over-funding education and the effort by some to raise their taxes. If we don’t speak to these consultants, those who want to raise taxes will.
I’m Scott Clem and I’m glad you’re visiting this site. A little about me… I’m a simple man who loves Wyoming, loves his family, and loves the Lord. I was elected as a State Representative in 2014. This site is designed to give YOU information. You’ll not only find information about myself and my positions, you’ll also find information on how you can get involved. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, have questions about legislation or state services, or just want to sound off on an issue that is important to you , then please contact me. As a public servant, I’m here to serve you! My views on issues are in part the following: with more found here.
“I have a strong record that reflects social and fiscal conservatism, and I look forward to using my skills to further represent the greatest group of people in Wyoming.”
These are my thoughts on some of the issues we face… Education: “Common Core (CC) is the socialization of education; Wyoming can do better. School boards/districts should be accountable to parents.” The Environment:: “I don’t believe that CO2 is a pollutant, and am furious of the EPA’s overreach.” “Marriage and social issues: “Our intrusive federal government has been violating the 10th Amendment.” “Public land: Should Washington D.C. bureaucrats control half our state and our minerals, and thereby our jobs? NO! Let Wyomingites control their own lands, minerals and our own future!
