LPS asks for too much

In a recent article, Littleton Public Schools Superintendent Brian Ewert says, “Voters of decades past left a legacy for us. This is our chance to leave a legacy for future generations.” I would like to rephrase his statement saying, this is their chance to leave a residue of increased property taxes and debt for future generations. He preys on fear that “Many of our buildings…have structural problems and issues with access for people with disabilities…”. I would say these are fixable without creating $300 million more of increased debt.

Each election cycle finds Littleton Public Schools asking for more money via debt and higher taxes. They are incapable of living within their means as most of us are want to do.

Further, they want to use part of this money to build a junior stadium at Newton Middle School, which will increase the traffic, congestion, and light pollution at the intersection of Colorado Boulevard and Arapahoe Road. Do we need this?
