Radnor Township School District School Board Urges Community to Vote “No” on Constitutional Amendment Question on Nov. 7 Ballot
Radnor Township School District Website Updated October 9, 2017
“As worded, the amendment language on the ballot does not present the full scope of its impact,” reads a news release from the district in part. “Should it pass, a path would be paved for the PA General Assembly to pursue legislation that would eliminate school property taxes, which in turn would significantly reduce our ability to control how our schools operate.” Following a resolution passed by the Radnor Township School District School Board in February 2017 and a corresponding information campaign that encouraged community members to oppose the elimination of school property taxes, the Board continues to advocate for local control of RTSD schools by asking all Radnor citizens to vote “no” on a proposed amendment* to the Pennsylvania Constitution that will be included on the November 7 ballot. The Board voted to begin a campaign to inform the community of this constitutional ballot question at its September 26 monthly business meeting.
Pennsylvania House Speaker Mike Turzai isn't running for governor - at least not yet, maybe never - but in a new video posted to his official Facebook page, the suburban Pittsburgh Republican is looking and sounding a lot like a candidate. In a more than three-minute attack spot that finds Turzai standing in front of some strategically placed blight in Allison Hill, the House's presiding officer laces into Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf, whom he accuses of pursuing a "formula for failure" in budget talks that have dragged on for nearly four months. "It's time some of us put our careers and our reputations on the line by saying no more. No more taxes. No more unaccountable, uncontrolled spending. No more gimmicks," Turzai says in the clip.
