from the list i saw in the weekly, it looks like these improvements will take the district years to repay ... the example this sets for kids is that if they have a political point to make, it's OK to use public funds in a questionable if not extravagant manner ... I'd rather see an example of frugality and practicality set for our kids ... don't blow money on things that haven't worked ... make the best use of public funds and ignore the agendas of wingnuts who have never been correct in the past.

Don't miss out on the discussion!

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
