Do something for our city

To the editor,

I just heard the distressing news regarding the BOE layoffs. My daughter’s kindergarten teacher is one of the affected teachers along with many others at her school. We, as parents, are outraged. I want to know where all our tax dollars are going if not enough is allocated to pay our public school teachers’ salaries. What is going on in this city? I’ve lived here for eight years, and my husband is a lifelong resident, but we will have to reconsider continuing to live here and paying nearly $13,000 property tax. This city has gone downhill in some regards and I, along with many other parents, am disappointed and disgusted. Mayor Davis, do something for our city!
