Considering the old adage “No news is good news,” perhaps the most notable difference between last year’s ballot proposal to build new middle and high schools and this year’s effort has been the lack of campaign signage.
A year ago, during a contested presidential election on down through state and county races, local 3A signs for and against outnumbered the other campaign signs in the Buena Vista area. Fast forward one year, and Vote No signs are nowhere to be seen. Vote Yes signs began popping up just recently.
The difference this year, proponents say, is that they listened to the objections of homeowners and business owners in the district by holding numerous information-gathering sessions following last year’s failed effort.
