In response to the criticism of former Woodford County Public Schools Superintendent Paul Stahler’s vote against the proposed Woodford County schools tax hike: Stahler stated facts as they were.
We need to repay what we owe first.
I am a senior with limited income. Any extra tax would be a burden for me. I am still paying off a second mortgage and had to get a new furnace with more borrowed money.
