Vote down RRC project, ask board to downsize

Why does Red Rock Central School District need a school for 600 students when it has an enrollment of 431?
This is not baseball. Just because you build it, does not mean they will come.
A 500-student building would be more than needed and cost a lot less than $42,100,000. For the repairs, they had everything itemized that included many wanted items that are not needed. For the new building, we are told RRC "needs" a 600-student building with all new furniture, fixtures and equipment. This needs to be scaled back!
I am a business owner (farmer). I can't imagine going into a bank and telling them I plan on buying something and saying that I don't know what this includes, but it is going to cost $42 million and I am told it is exactly what I "need."
I know what any banker would tell me, or any other farmer: "No."
This is exactly what the RRC school board is asking us voters (bankers) to do. Please vote no and have them downsize and make this project more affordable.
How is a new building going to increase test scores or retain students? I personally know of two families that open-enrolled out this year, due to the way they were treated at RRC.
I am not an RRC-hater. I am just brave enough to speak up and tell the truth.
Please vote no on both issues!
