From the first taxpayers’ revolution in California in 1978, North Carolina has escaped a full-scale rebellion over local property taxes.
I predict that is going to change soon. Specifically, this fall. And specifically right here in Wake County over the school bond issue.
The issue is popping up all over the country again. South Carolina is considering a referendum this fall over rising property assessments.
Given some of the numbers we’ve seen connected with the Wake County school bonds, we’re ripe for the revolution here.
The new school superintendent and all the business and political leaders who support this bond issue had better put on their armor for this fight.

You are absolutely right. If I have anything to do with it the revolt will be led by the voters in District C.

As long as we have the financial scandals and mismanagement it would be foolhardy to trust the bureaucracy with these bonds. The WCPSS under McNeal resisted a full scale forensic audit. Public trust is a funny thing, it’s hard to earn but so easy to loose. The BoE is going to have to come to grips with the fact that arrogance is no substitute for trustworthiness.
I would vote for the bonds, if I trust the BoE and the bureaucracy. I don’t see how anyone could unless they have a vested interest in it.
