The question had been asked, “Where do we go from here?” In response, we have formed a new group, Batavians for Responsible Government (BRG). All who had contacted Lower the Levy to request a yard sign or show support had been sent an invitation to an organizational meeting. The turn-out was very encouraging. With the help of Geneva Tax FACTS and a reform-minded school board member from another district, we are off to a good start.
BRG is being patterned after the watchdog group, Geneva Tax FACTS, in their quest to gather and disseminate information on the activities of local taxing bodies, with the school board being our initial focus. BRG will go a step further and work to recruit, train, and get new school board members elected who will use the money of the taxpayers responsibly and respectfully, while working to provide high quality education.
If you would like to get involved in this endeavor, or if you cannot get involved at this time but would like to receive updates on future meetings and happenings, please contact us through the Lower the Levy contact page.
