LPOSD’s Insatiable Appetite For Taxpayer Money

The Lake Pend Oreille School District has become widely known for its insatiable appetite for taxpayer money, no matter the economy, no matter its enrollment figures, or the impact it has on property owners and, indirectly, on renters.

Two years ago, it saddled us with an all-time high supplemental levy of $17 million.  On March 12 of this year, it wants our vote on an even higher levy of $25.4 million.  When will it ever be enough?

Apparently never.

In 2016, right before the $17 million levy proposal, Superintendent Woodward told the Daily Bee: “As we look at the future of our school district, the needs are always going to outweigh the resources coming in.”

There’s your road map to never ending levies.

It’s also the reason he was hired. The Daily Bee reported this statement from him in 2013, talking about his job interview: “The board members asked me how confident I would be as superintendent, running a levy campaign. That was literally the first thing that was asked of me behind closed doors during the interview.” Literally the first thing? Not experience, not qualifications, just: make sure we get levies passed?

He has been living up to it ever since: the supplemental levy went up almost $12 million since he made that statement.

  1. How is it that normal people are led to believe that the fund from which all this criminal government power is funded is in any way “taxpayer money”?

    If it confesses that it is tyrannical, despotic, and criminal, and if the actual law process lawfully determines that it is, in fact, criminal, then it is not “taxpayer money,” it is stolen loot.

    Since it is stolen loot, then those who steal it will inevitably, and perhaps invariably, spend the loot stealing more.

    “The Lake Pend Oreille School District has become widely known for its insatiable appetite for taxpayer money, no matter the economy, no matter its enrollment figures, or the impact it has on property owners and, indirectly, on renters.”

    The bla, bla, bla, criminal organization confesses (widely known for those who want to know) its insatiable appetite for stolen loot, and as a matter (no matter?) of fact the stolen loot must be taken either from those who produce anything worth stealing, or stolen from fellow criminals who have themselves stolen the loot from those who produce anything worth stealing.

    Since the Nationalists (criminals) took over in 1789, consolidating all the formerly independent state governments into one profitable monopoly, then either this bla, bla, bla, branch of that trunk is allowed to share the loot, or by some miracle that branch is taking over the turf already well patrolled by the profitable monopoly corporate legal fiction criminal gang.

    Why would the national criminal gang members afford these petty local criminals the license to steal so much of their property?
