Would you favor a bond issue or tax increase to expand capacity or improve school buildings?

Yes and I think we need to be working towards a bond issue referendum.  We have existing bonds that will expire in 2024.  Our operational budget growth is capped at 2% and is not a way to fund large long-term initiatives.  In the 12 years my son, now a senior, has been in the Metuchen school system, we have added 300 students.  We continue to see incremental growth every year and we need to add space to accommodate the programming we want.  In addition to needing more space, our HVAC equipment and roofs are reaching end of life and are in need of upgrades.
