In-depth: Talk Now. Vote Later.

Author’s disclaimer: I graduated from Batesville High School, and currently have one child in the district, with two more on the way. I am the ideal yes voter for the upcoming millage. Additionally, I am on the Buildings and Grounds Steering Committee, which researched and provided guidance on the millage proposals. With that said, I spent many days researching facts I considered relevant to the issue and made reasonable attempts to present them in an unbiased manner.
