|Group opposed to Prop C sets kickoff rally|
October 06, 2010 -A newly formed group opposing the Mehlville School District's Proposition C will sponsor a kickoff rally at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 14, at the Holiday Inn South County Center, 6921 S. Lindbergh Blvd.
The Mehlville Community Taxpayers Association, a grass-roots, nonpartisan citizens' group, is sponsoring the forum.
The MCTA is opposed to the proposed 88-cent tax-rate increase voters will consider Nov. 2, citing what it contends is the Board of Education's lack of credibility and the community's inability to afford Prop C, which district officials estimate will generate $15.4 million in new revenue annually.
MCTA members recently told the Call they established their organization because of a growing sense of dissatisfaction with the representation being provided by Board of Education members and their belief the board is out of touch with the community.
