According to the 2010 census, the Per Capita income in Victoria county is $23,219.00. What do you suppose the average income of Victoria College employees might be?
Any increase of taxes on the citizens of the county should be stopped. The Victoria College Board of Trustees needs to have more than a "quick meeting", to figure out how their institution can operate without more tax money being confiscated.
Forget the Advocate's favorite '$4.00 per $100,000' analogy and call this what it is. It is taking money away from some ... and giving it to (a very privaledged) few. There is no justification. The board does it ... just because they are allowed to do it.
