Vote no on bond issues

I am writing to voice my concerns regarding the $46 million bond election.

This city is $3 million in debt and we are already paying off an $84 million library bond. Now the mayor dangles "carrots" in the form of library, soccer fields, etc., in front of unsuspecting residents' noses to get them to vote for an additional $46 million to put the city in the red $133 million.

Things like soccer fields and libraries cost a lot of taxpayer money. Bond money only covers the cost of building these items. People have to be aware that they will fork out the money to continue operating these venues. I feel we should vote against these bond issues as they only hurt the pocketbooks of those who need their money most.
