I would not want to sit on either one of those after seeing the venom spewed.

Guess how that's going to work out.
What data are you using to come to this conclusion? Please share, I would like to look at the numbers. Thank you

I am not sure I agree. When we are out and about we see so many new houses in Marvin, Waxhaw, Weddington, etc.

I thought the BOCC voted down the CCEP? And the agreed on a smaller bond.

I heard that acronym is dead now. The only point I was making was that there seemed to be quite a few board members who were in favor of a new SV, but the County and the current BOE leadership were dead set against it.

You are correct in that the current BOE voted down the bonds request attached to the CCEP, (and approved a smaller bond issue. Theory being you eat an elephant small bites at a time.) but regardless of name, the CCEP in some variation or acronym must exist. A plan not to plan will fail. Remember the last crop of Commissioners admonished the BOE because they didn't think there was enough long range planning. Staff and BOE have always produced a 5 year plan, construction, maintenance, and financial. It was made clear during the BOE/BOCC trial that a 5 year plan was in effect. It was called the CFS and then CFP once adopted. There has always been a continuing plan, and a constantly changing plan. Nothing different going on with this BOE or Staff.

I believe it was a take it or leave it from the county. Some members of the county just want kids moved to where there are open seats.

There are only four returning members on the current BOE. How could they have voted it down? The bond was voted on before they were elected.

Rancher has it right there. The previous school board voted for the smaller bond, but listening to snippets of meetings it seems like it was take a smaller bond or get nada. It looked like Ms. Boyd and Ms. Merrell worked out the details with the county and then brought it to the larger board.
