We offer Weiss and the rest of the New Berlin School Board our congratulations on the completion of this project without raising the taxes in New Berlin. Serving on a school board is a thankless task, more so when the school board has had to take some courageous stands in order to keep the property tax levy in check. The New Berlin school board leads by example, and I believe President Ronald Reagan would be proud to have a school named after him in their district.
Update! Nice article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, although it would have been nice had they bothered to mention that the school was built without raising taxes, something unique in recent experience.
