Letter: Government, Dickinson schools need back-up plan
In the Tuesday Dickinson Press, Dickinson Public School Assistant Superintendent Vince Reep said, “The short answer is if Measure 2 passes we’ll have larger issues in my mind. We haven’t been directing a contingency plan, if you will, at this point.”
Board member Leslie Ross said, “How do you plan for a future we can’t really envision right now? It’s very difficult.”
Government doesn’t have a backup plan!
A farmer, rancher, especially an oilfield supervisor always has a backup plan. They have to, because they deal with life and death situations.
The state has smelled (something) in the air. It must be Measure 2 and the possibility of a yes vote to pass it. What would a privatized operation do?
Make a backup plan, well before the storm. Lightening can strike (sooner than later).
Where should we stand? How will we deal with it before the oil in the hole blows out?
We need to vote for good people, that we pay big bucks and one’s that can plan for a good possible outcome. There’s always a way, if you don’t just look straight ahead. Have a plan.
