School Referendum Campaign Spending 15 to 1

The Brainerd School District released campaign finance reports for spending on last fall's operating levy referendum. A district spokesman told the Brainerd Dispatch that those in favor of the referendum spent nearly $32,000 ($31,967.42.) while those opposed spent just over $2,500 ($2,529). The November 6th, 2007 referendum would have increased property taxes by $5.5-Million per year for the next ten years and linked the tax increase to inflation. Voters decided against the referendum by a wide margin.
