Show Blossom pride now more than ever

If you have voted yes in the past for the levy and haven’t voluntarily paid your expected tax increase, you need to do so now! The superintendent and his loyal followers owe for two years! Approximately 600 voters multiplied by $400 each is enough money to save the school. All the teachers that believed we needed a new building more than the funding to operate it should voluntarily take pay cuts to show their commitment to the kids.

As far as the school board members responsible for the current crisis “You created this mess, You fix it!” Now is not the time to run away like cowards. Our kids will be punished for the irresponsible actions of the above-mentioned people so do the right thing now and open your wallets voluntarily and give the money to the school.

Now is the time to show your true Blossom pride. Do the right thing. You owe it to the next generation. Don’t be anti-Blooming Prairie. It is only a can of pop per day!

Checks or cash can be delivered to the school office. If the money is received in time, then the school board and administration will not have to abuse the kids by making such deep cuts. What did the kids do to deserve this? Time to put your money where your mouth is!

I personally would prefer to support the students and the good teachers with common sense instead of the out-of-town construction people, but that was not a choice I made, but was made by others for me. If the shoe fits, wear it!
