Results from the Nov. 5 election show voters in support of both Kyrene School District (KSD) and Tempe Union High School District (TUHSD) Maintenance and Operations Overrides.
The tone of the discussion at the Tempe Union High School District Governing Board meeting concerning the South Mountain Freeway was very different from the discussion two weeks earlier. At the Nov. 6 meeting, the board voted two in favor, one opposed and one abstaining from voting against the Loop 202 Freeway.

In case you are wondering how to vote on the Kyrene School District and Tempe Union High School District bond overrides, here are some thoughts.
I am writing out my check for property taxes. Many of you do not see the taxes and overrides since you pay them with your house payment. This year, the amount for the Kyrene override went up 3.1 percent over last year. The override amounts are actually more than the elementary bond rates.
In the past few months since I retired, I have taken a great interest in watching our community very closely. I now have the time to see how Ahwatukee functions in the day time, something I rarely saw when I worked — never had time to do so.
If I had a nickel for every vote that ultimately defeated last November’s Maintenance and Operation Budget Override request for the Tempe Union High School District, I still wouldn’t have enough money to buy my wife and daughter a ticket to the movies, popcorn and drinks.
Mr. Don Kennedy, your entire letter is not just inaccurate (“Operate within budget instead of asking for bond override,” AFN, Oct. 9), it’s very premise for opposing the request of the district doesn’t even exist. Tempe Union is not requesting a bond. There is no tax increase. There is no debt in this request. There are no additional dollars going in to the budget. I realize this makes this response brutally short and lacking great debate. None of what you said is true. So since we are supporting the very action you seem to call for, to endorse a CONTINUATION of the EXISTING spending authority WITHOUT a tax increase for a school district that has, by far, the LOWEST tax rates in Maricopa County, I would hope that the wonderful services provided by this district has now earned your vote.
In November, we’re being asked to vote on extending a bond override to save the Kyrene and Tempe Union school districts from financial disaster. We’re being told such an action won’t increase our taxes. Really?
The Public Policy Committee met Friday afternoon to hear a brief discussion about the Maintenance and Operations Override, which voters will be asked to either approve or decline in the upcoming November election.
Demonstrating support for budget overrides for the Tempe Union High School District and the Kyrene School District extends beyond party lines, a bipartisan group of local elected officials, including Sen. John McComish, Rep. Jeff Dial, Rep. Bob Robson, and former Rep. Rae Waters will be going door-to-door today talking to voters to encourage support of the two upcoming budget overrides.
