Letter: Lake Elmo Council

To the Editor:

I watched the Council meeting of Nov. 17. After this meeting I learned Lake Elmo has hired a parliamentarian. Did the residents have any knowledge of this “new” person and the money it is costing Lake Elmo? The mayor does not have any authority. By the way, I think he has done a fantastic job and has more patience than most people given most of the council members he has to work with. “

Letter: 622 No’s Know

To the Editor:

Fifty-nine percent of voters believe that the current annual budget of $10 million to $12 million is sufficient. The system is seriously flawed. The correction needs to start by reinstituting discipline. Additional classroom funding should come from slashing the glut of administration, whose focus is on socialization not education.

Letter: Deeply disappointed in 622 levy results

To the Editor:

We are two of the many deeply disappointed parents of the Nov. 3 outcome not to increase levy funding for School District 622. Our three bright, tenacious learners attend Carver Elementary, a school celebrating student diversity, community feel, passionate teachers, and academic performance.

Letter: On being slowly crushed…

To the Editor:

ISD 622 voters just denied another levy request from the school district, and we remain at the absolute bottom of the barrel among metro districts for funding…  I’ve been giving everything I’ve got to North High for over 20 years.

Letter: Setting the record straight

To the Editor:
 
Regarding the “Sticky Subject” referred to in the Wed., Nov. 11 article “Voters elect two new faces for city council,” my campaign did not make an issue of Mr. Xiong or Mr. Smith not being homeowners.  As a neighborhood attorney, I serve lower to middle income individuals with 70 percent of my clientele falling into a category of being elderly, a minority, a renter, or having limited financial resources.

Letter: Failed 622 levy a disappointment

To the Editor:

Our family is incredibly upset that the referendum did not pass. This past week Amy Ledoux emphasized what many families of school-aged children feel.
District 622 is the lowest funded district of the top 20 districts in the Twin Cities, per student. We almost did not move to Oakdale this summer because of the school district. We came from a house in Woodbury.

Letter: We voted ‘yes’

To the Editor:
Like many district 622 parents, I watched the poll results in the evening of November 3.  Earlier in the day, my husband and I took our two young boys (aged 2 and 4) with us to our polling station.  We voted “yes” not only for our children but also for our entire community.

Letter: We demand an audit!

To the Editor:
Again Lake Elmo makes the front page! “Bloyer censured by Lake Elmo majority” Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015.  Since January of this year the dysfunction has risen to a level that I have not seen in the past 35 years that we have operated our family restaurant in Lake Elmo. Seven city employees have quit just this year under the new council majority!

Letter: Our children are being short changed

To the Editor:
I am encouraging everyone to vote ‘yes’ for the two school levy questions in the November election. District 622 has extremely important issues on the ballot. We are in desperate need of passing our levy. Yes, desperate. In the past 10 years we have watched our school board cut millions of dollars from the budget. Each of those years the education staff has continued to educate our students. I believe we have stretched our budget so tight that it will snap if we do not adequately fund our community schools by passing this levy.

To the Editor:
As a PROUD teacher, resident, and tax payer of the North St. Paul, Maplewood, Oakdale, School Dist. #622, I urge you to vote YES on the upcoming levy on Nov. 3!!
