No Means Try Again

Voters in the Gull Lake school district narrowly rejected a tax increase on Tuesday.  Many school districts don't like taking no for an answer, and will keep putting the same (or similar) measures on the ballot until one passes. But Gull Lake went one step further.

Gull Lake schools millage request to appear again on May 6 ballot
Christopher Rundle, superintendent of Gull Lake schools, said the board met Friday to discuss its next steps. The proposal will appear again on the May 6 ballot because the board had voted 6-0 on Monday to have the request put before voters again in May as a fallback plan in case it failed Tuesday.
So they put it on the ballot again before it was even rejected the first time!
