Perkins school board forges ahead

Register • May 13, 2013 at 7:52 AM

Excerpt: But voters aren't hearing the messages the way Perkins Schools superintendent Jim Gunner and the school board intend for them to be heard, and some residents, so angered by the inside millage switch, have become activists of sorts dogging the district's efforts to gain voter support. 

The board voted last week to try again with a tax levy in August . If it's going to succeed this time around, Gunner, board members and supporters are going to need a plan of action that finds a way to overcome that voter resentment. 

And the vocal residents opposed to any increase might serve the community if they take the time to listen, and keep an open mind, this time around.
