It's election day here. My town's population is estimated to be 7,414. We're very much like one another. 95.4% of our population is White-Non-Hispanic. We have fewer than one thousand children in grades K-12. What would we fight about in a school board election?
One of our residents has donated 15 million dollars for an "arts center." There are strings attached. The center has to be located at a particular site, for one. According to the paper, our town is 2 miles square. You'd think we could agree on a place.
I for one don't even want her money. I'm sick of the whole mess.
I hope my one vote counts in this election, as much as her 15 million dollars does.
