You can find many compelling reasons to vote against these bonds on this website and also in the News & Observer article where AgainstTheBonds.com Committee Chairman Robb Ward explains the case against Wake County's needless and excessive spending.
Regardless of your position on these bonds, you'll probably agree that One Billion Dollars is a lot of additional money for any single county to borrow. The Public Schools, Wake Tech and the Parks each have a line item on the county budget to pay for their needs. This is one billion dollars IN ADDITION TO THAT.
Why so much money? Is Wake County broke? Is there an emergency need? Actually quite the opposite. Property values grew by 2.9% in 2017 with a projected 2.1% additional growth this year. Sales tax revenues are increasing by 6% year over year. The fact is, according to Wake County's own budget numbers, the schools, parks and community college can have everything proposed in these bonds without borrowing even one dime and without raising your taxes at all.
Discover the secret behind these bonds and why you should vote NO for all of them. A leading local economist will cut through their smoke & mirrors using Wake County's own budget reports at a meeting of the Wake County Taxpayers Association Thursday, October 25th. The meeting at Golden Corral, 6129 Glenwood Ave., Raleigh, starts at 6:30 PM and is open to the public.
