This November the Cedarburg School District will seek $59.8 million in new spending from voters in a referendum.
That’s not exactly a news bulletin. Wisconsin has gone school referendum crazy.
But a survey sent to Cedarburg residents to determine if they were interested in a referendum in the first place may have skewed the results.
Documents obtained by the MacIver News Service through an open records request show at least one Cedarburg School Board member and several community members were concerned the community survey the district commissioned to gauge interest in the huge spending spree could be more of a marketing tool to justify the costly proposal.
The MacIver Institute reports on various question marks regarding the survey.
Again, this is not exactly a news bulletin because this is how the tax and spenders operate.
