I voted yes, but I think there has to be a revote. if not, then the school board is saying that votes don't matter, all that matters is that we got what we wanted. I think that is a very dangerous road to go down. They need to do it right and make sure everyone who is eligible to vote has the opportunity to do so. There were enough problems to easily say that people were denied the opportunity to vote. We don't want that hanging over our heard during this important project.
