I understand why people vote for him. They do not want an increase to any funding for the school district. I just don't understand how people think he is doing anything good for schools. I don't recall him EVER bringing a new idea or plan for the district that could help or change things. Unfortunately as his vote totals show, he is a replica of many people in our community.

Everyone knows Bud is the "people's champion". Vote "no" on everything, then you'll get re-elected every time. No need to read things, no need to understand things, no need to research things, no hard decisions to make.
