Opponents of the $810 million Wake County school bond issue have purchased newspaper and online ads urging people to vote no Tuesday because “there is a better, more efficient way to provide what is truly necessary.”
The print ad, which appeared Sunday in the News & Observer’s community papers, cites issues such as the 10.5-percent tax increase, the number of available seats and says Wake has “a reputation of overestimating" enrollment. It also notes changes made by the General Assembly that would increase competition from private schools and charter schools.
The version of the ad that appeared in the Southwest Wake News also charges that “Apex is once again the step-sister of the bond. Apex High Schools much needed renovations will once again not be included.”
