    How can people call this a fake election? Just because you didn’t like the result doesn’t mean it was rigged. I voted, so if it passed or didn’t pass, I wouldn’t have minded, since I at least had done my part. Believe it or not, we don’t always get our way in this world, and how you handle it makes you the person you are (or aren’t).

    I believe the real issue is that voters in Mason City don’t feel they have a voice. Extremely low turnout, really pathetic. To all you who claim this had overwhelming support, kiss my hairy ass!

      Why didn’t the people who were against it get and vote to defeat it? I believe the outcome speaks for itself.

      Well lets see, 77% of the voters in favor for NIACC & 78% of the voters in favor for the Mason City Community School measure.
      Ya, I would definitely call that overwhelming support.

    whether it “truthfully” passed or not. there is an agenda at work and whatever they want they get – the ends justify the means including “lying”, already knew this would pass – before the fake election

    other than voting no, how do you hold Mason city school system accountable?
    They incorrectly pay over 2.000.000 in wages and let it go?
    They pay somebody a additional 40.000 to not work after banging his secretary at school?
    Do we have to keep spending more for these type actions?
    WHO is accountable? Why give them more?

      I concur, also what ever they want they get – to keep everyone engaged in they’re mass deception, keeping everyone owing them $ against their will – forced taxation, they have just given themselves raises and created jobs at others expense, meanwhile they have plenty pf $cash – what they do not have is “honesty”. my view

    Guess that the 20% of people who complained on this site don’t have the support they thought.

      I don’t think most of them bother to vote, they would rather just complain. Either way it was another overwhelming win for the yes vote on some projects that will be good for the community.
