To the Editor:
To all of you that sit on the Brownsburg Town Council — we don't want this. People are going to lose their homes if you do this. Our schools are already falling behind other school districts in Central Indiana. They need more money, not less money and more students.
It is a sad day when a handful of people set out to change the character of our town with utter disregard for other people that live here.
In case you were wondering, I will not be voting for any of you again. You have let us all down.
I have seen signs around town stating the Brownsburg Town Board wants to annex in more acres of land so Brownsburg will have future growth, however at what price? I have two children in the Brownsburg School system. When we moved to Brownsburg 15 years ago the top reason we choose Brownsburg was the excellent school system and the small town feel, however that has changed in the last 15 years.
You have cut the school budget so tight that our schools are forced into class sizes that the schools are clearly not equipped to handle, however we have a town hall that cost over $15 million to build and is used by few. Where are our priorities?
My oldest son had a science class a year ago in a class lab built for 24 students but there were 32 students assigned to his class. Needless to say, he didn’t really learn all he could have if the teacher could have done more experiments with hands on opportunities. Shame is he really liked science until that year.
Per a letter I received, the school board has informed the town council that they cannot handle the expansion of students that this annexation will cause, however you are ignoring this. How can you ignore the input of one of the most important selling points for people moving to Brownsburg, the quality of our school system?

You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.
