I ran for Munster School Board to stop this nonsense.

Here are some Munster school referendum numbers they don’t tell you.

Tax increase of 10 percent per house; Renters increase of $35 per month.

Superintendent Richard Sopko’s total compensation is nearly $300,000, one of the highest in the state. There are five schools in Munster and more than 60 in Indianapolis. Sopko’s school car for personal use costs the equivalent of two teacher’s aides.

The School Town of Munster doesn’t need more money; they need money well spent. Vote no now!
