To Jean Casanave the PAC that should actually be called the Citizens "Against" CCISD or against community growth, you are just wrong ("Vote 'no' May 6 on CCID bond," The Daily News, April 17).
I'm curious as to how many members, including Jean, have attended any of the forums conducted by the school district or toured the facilities that need renovations? I'm willing to bet that it is not that many or they may be able to see the need for these funds.
So many elementary schools are so overcrowded an entire grade is forced into portables. This bond will provide funding to build a much needed elementary school to help alleviate overcrowding. This school district is part of a rapid growth spurt in League City and adjoining towns and like it or not, it is 2017 not 1947, when, I suspect, a lot of the opponents were last in school.
This is a much-needed bond proposal that most definitely will benefit the community and the children growing up within it. So have an open mind and don't follow in lockstep with those whose myopic visions clutter their outlook on the world around them.
