Casino owners have more right to exist then teachers in Delaware.

Well, our legislators have bowed down to the money hungry casino owners they helped create! Not only will the state not see its share of the profits the owners reap from the slots run by the “state Lottery office”, but another source of revenue was denied that is sorely needed! So the lesson here today students is that profits are more important then teachers salaries that are looking to be cut by at least 8% to balance the budget. I have my own little slant to this stupidity that I will share here. First, the under-educated masses ,due to teachers leaving, will have lowerer paying jobs, and their only hope of prosperity will be to gamble at the slots. This will help raise the profits for these owners even higher! Second, an under-educated public also means less individuals understanding the politics in Dover so the “old-boys” hold on to their offices that much longer increasing there salaries and pensions! Bottom-line is the state is still run by special interest, and with the passage of HB 117 they are looking to drive away the last chance for volunteer citizens to make a difference for education!

    Did you see HA 3 re: HB 117 that will allow the district the option of having board election other than November and if they did, the district would be required to foot 100% of the bill for the election? Also, it still call for those wanting to vote to be “registered voters”
    HB is not about saving money whatsoever.
