I know it is too late, the referendum has already passed, but that does not mean it is not affecting the public and myself.

I understand the Lake Central High School needs more room. I know from experience; I went to that school. There was constant fighting, and there was so much diversity at the school that made students clash. Students come from different towns/cities, from Schererville to Dyer and everything in between.

How come no one thought of building a new school to make up for the overpopulated school? They could use the money they are using to make Lake Central bigger to build a whole other school.

But the referendum is going to make this problem worse. This is not only going to affect students but also the rest of the public.

Why make people who are already suffering from this recession have to pay more taxes? What about the elderly people in these areas who only live off of Social Security and now have to worry about taxes going into the building of Lake Central?

I understand the people who are suffering did not vote because of lack of education. I am not saying that those people lack education in general; I mean they lack education in politics and what is going on in the United States.
