Appleton Column on Referenda Restriction Bill

Please check out a column in the Appleton Post Crescent written by Appleton Area School Board member Jim Bowman and former AASD CFO and current advisor Don Hietpas. This is a great example of school board/district advocacy and one other boards can use as a model.

The column argues against the bill currently being considered by the state legislature that would eliminate recurring operating referenda, limit multi-year non-recurring operating referenda to 5 years, and eliminate referendum-approved revenue authority that was approved in any previous recurring referendum five years after the effective date of the bill (Referendum Restriction Bill Is Worse Than You Thought).  Great job Jim and Don!
