    Here is why I will NOT vote yes on the Seminole county school referendum. Last year the former superintendant was quoted on the front page of the O. Sentinel saying that at least four schools had trophy cases constructed under a rennovation program. Oviedo HS was one. The quoted cost for each trophy case was $89,000. He then went o to inform us that artificial turf was being provided to schools for an estimated $100,000 each. Later in the year we find that Oviedo HS is being fined an estimated $50,000 for inappropriate activities in the Athletic program. Doesn’t anyone review the procurement documents before, during and after construction? Do you really expect the tax payrers to pay these fines and $89,000 trophy cases and $100,000 “Updated” playing fields. NOT this taxpayer or his wife.
