House Public Education Committee Testimony
Catherine Dadey’s testimony to the House Public Education Committee on April 5 has been posted online.
Austin’s school board and the voting community have made choices regarding our tax effort and funding education. We chose to tax higher than other districts to keep class sizes low. We chose not to offer optional homestead exemptions. Like districts all over the state, we chose to invest in our children because they need it and they deserve it. As a voter and taxpayer, I support other communities’ rights to make different decisions, because I support the ability for our community to make decisions for our kids.
