Are they blind?

Isn’t it interesting that the Shamokin school board can’t see that the taxpaying citizens of the city and township cannot afford another tax increase? Are they that blind that they don’t see store fronts empty, people not working and a declining population? The majority of people in the area are elderly people on fixed incomes and yet they add more and more taxes to the people who can least afford it. Why don’t they just seize everyone’s home and sheriff sale the whole city to keep the schools going? Talk about ignorance of the conditions in which they live.
