Blue Ridge Schools Leader Discusses Upcoming Sales Tax Referendum

With a week to the primary election in DeWitt County, one school district that would benefit from a referendum item says their communities are pretty well aware of what it is all about.


For Blue Ridge schools, their district spans three counties and for Superintendent of Blue Ridge Schools, Susan Wilson, the district has been through this process several times and they've maintained their goals as they prepare for it.



The measure has passed in Piatt County, which is one of the three counties Blue Ridge's district falls under. Wilson indicates they hope to provide their tax payers with relief from their annual levies.



Wilson has done a number of speaking engagements this week but feels the community is well aware of the sales tax and what it is all about. Because of that, they have done a limited amount of campaigning on the issue.
