I say yes...

I have read all of the posts on this topic, and collectively each of you have a valid point. Especially about neighboring counties helping foot the bill... However, your comment about the reason you moved here for lower taxes just pi**es me off. First of all, a community college system is for LOCAL people...sorry you chose to "retire" here, but I have lived here all of my life and feel that this could benefit alot of local people and give them an opportunity for prosperity. I just registered my daughter for fall classes and was pleasantly shocked at the low tuition rate. A community college system is designed to educate local people that can not afford the tuition of a 4 year institute. And yes, I feel that we the tax payers should pay for this. I have an idea, why doesn't GE pay for expanding programs...after all, they aren't paying any taxes to the local economy, and they have a curriculm designed especially for them...
