    Election letter: No on school taxes

    The reason I am voting “no” on this proposition one is a matter of principle. I am a fan of universal vouchers for education, and will not support more public infrastructure until a voucher program is initiated. I am in favor of vouchers, not tax credits. My plan for vouchers, however...
