Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
I still believe that we could manage our facilities needs without a referendum. Adding an unbonded $1 to $2 million a year just for the high schools to our capital improvement budget could go a long way in improving our schools.(This would require referendum approval.)
In years we have surpluses at year end, this year we had $3.5 million, and we could make noticible improvements.
(Remember, we defeased $2.5 mil in 2006 (did not require referendum approval), so that amount has been added to our tax bills before.)
