A group known as “Common Sense Coalition for Better Schools” is hosting a Forum on the District 55 School Bond Referendum this evening at the Laurens County Higher Education Center. Keith Tripp is among those to speak. On the WLBG Morning News Magazine last Thursday morning, Mr. Tripp said that all previous meetings about the referendum, including focus groups and committees, were controlled by the school district. Tripp said they have had full and ample opportunity to lay out their reasons to support passing the referendum. He said tonight’s forum is to provide an opportunity for everyone, those in support as well as those opposed to the referendum, to express themselves. He said folks for and against the referendum are invited.
As for his opinion, Mr. Tripp said $109 million is more than our people can afford. Keith Tripp is chair of the Laurens County Republican Party.
The Forum begins at 7:00 this evening in room 411 of the Laurens County Higher Education Center. It is to conclude by 8:30.
