Butt-Whuppin' Time (Updated)

Latest numbers on JPS bond issue:


For:11,449
Against:1,757

Over 85% of the voters approved the bond referendum.  JJ made its position on the referendum quite known and attempted to explain the reasons for the opposition.  Some wondered why this website focused on the referendum so much.  Truth be told, the fleecing known as the 2016 JPS refinancing slipped by JJ and the Kingfish was pretty mad about missing that one, especially after discovering what the fees were.  This website let down the readers on that one and a silent promise was made not to do it again if another bond issue arose.

Believe it or not, I am perfectly fine with the results of yesterday's election.  We actually had a real discussion and debate over a school bond issue before the vote took place.  This was probably the first time that really happened in Jackson and it was encouraging to see. You got to see the guts of the bond deal and JPS finances.The voters considered what they heard and voted for it yesterday or supported it by staying home.  That is what a referendum is about- making a choice.  Only one precinct voted against the referendum - #35.  A few were in the 30-40% range but the supporters steamrolled their way to victory in most precincts.   JPS leaders know they are being watched and will hopefully do what needs to be done.

Certainly everyone saw this coming. It’s free $$$$. Personally I don’t have a problem with bond issuance, only how it’s being spent. Then again, I live in a town a little north of Jackson.

At this point, all that you can do (if the referendum passes) is focus your reporting on attempting to hold JPS accountable with this money. Good luck. I will say this, a good Bond attorney is worth a lot of money. But I do think the fact that the market crowds out so many players does increase the price that bond attorneys can charge. I think it is a distorted Market.

I thought it was pretty telling when the mayor got on TV and threatened tax increases if the bond issue didn't pass. Not a word about making the district do more (or less when it comes to administrative staff) with less. I'm sure in Rankin and Madison Counties their school boards will be laughing when the JPS fails again. But at least the buildings will look pretty --- until the vandalism begins of all the new stuff.

" I mean, there are 5,000 JPS employees..."

Anyone have any actual numbers on how many JPS employees pay property taxes that will be affected by the bond vote? That is a straight "request for info" question.

Just an opinion, but a vote should be tied to being affected by the results - if you do not pay property tax, it really doesn't matter whether it is an increase or not. To be sure, all residents are affected by their representation, but to allow those local voters who do not pay a local tax to vote on that tax seems unreasonable. No jurisdiction allows those not in the district to vote on representation on the grounds, in general, that they have no dog in the fight. Why shouldn't property tax voting be the same? In other words, holding an election to "tax someone else" seems a bit unnecessary; what would anyone expect the results to be on a "make someone else pay my bills" election?

Kingfish this is your chance to hold JPS accountable for every dime spent on this bond. Hold their feet to the fire. Some of us believe in what you are trying to do.

If the 3500 for, 500 against total is even close, it just put another nail in Mississippi's coffin. It isn't the result, it is the turnout. Why would any sensible business want to come here without giveaways that greatly favor them? Jackson, its schools, its crime, and its potholes are a lost cause. It is the capital city of a state that needs every effort its citizens can muster. We're in last place and trying hard to stay there. And Jackson voters just ignored their way into yet another debacle.

Some of you should do a 2016 census quick fact check before commenting.
The percentage of homeowners, high school graduates, and college+ graduates is higher for Jackson than for much of the State.
26% attended college where only 14% is the State average. The average income rose from the last census.
Right now, I'm wishing all of those who are anti-Jackson would take a DNA test.
One of the facts some of you should look up is how many Southerners show up not being so " lily white" as you imagine yourself to be.

JPS is administration heavy. Corporations pay their CEOs ridiculously excessive salaries and bonuses. I'm less upset about the former rather than the latter. And, I also know that public education and believing that a good education was important was what once made the US a leader in the world. There is much to do at the top as well. All of the top heavy criticisms and misuse of funds can apply to IHLs as well.
But, no one's complaining about millions in spending on construction or coach or administrative salaries not going to educate college students or to hire better faculty or to scholarships for brilliance rather than athleticism.
Our hypocrisy is getting pretty hard to hide.

732, the difference in your attempt to compare CEO salaries to the administrators at JPS is very basic. The CEO salary is paid by a company whose (voluntary) owners, the stockholders that choose on their own accord to invest in the company either approve of the,salary based on the results produced, or choose to disagree by selling their investment. But the ones paying the tab for these overpaid and top heavy administrators don't have tgat option. We don't get to get out of our interest in JPS as they extort more and more taxes to waste on these salaries.

Nice try at comparing private businesses to government without recognizing the differences between voluntarily invesring, as well as paying for success and dismissing for failure.

Anonymous said...

These numbers aren't surprising. At my polling site I spoke with a group of ladies after we all voted and I could tell they were 2000% in favor of the bond. No critical thinking, just supporting it because the kids deserve better schools. I don't disagree, but JPS should be smarter and more transparent about these deals. But they know the population they are soliciting from doesn't care about details.

I watched the WAPT report/video last night of the poll workers and election officials pulling-up in their vehicles in downtown Jackson at wherever it was that they were supposedly counting/totaling the votes from the day. Children, under age youth, were carrying and pulling the ballot bag boxes across the street.

I saw pictures of the Mayor, Lumumba, inside the "vote counting" room strolling about laughing and talking to the "election officials", they all appeared to be smiling and happy.

From what I could tell, the voters marked their paper ballots, scan machine styled ballots, and then DID NOT scan them through the voting machines to verify their vote was recorded, but simply deposited them into a slot on top of the blue ballot boxes. How did this process work? Who was responsible for tallying the voters votes yesterday? Did this take place at the voting precinct, or at this downtown room after the polls closed?

I will bet anybody whatever they want that our Secretary of State, Hosemann, will not say ONE WORD about any of this. After all, he now knows that they know where he lives, after they stole his truck from his driveway, and in the summer, lots of bodies and heads turn-up around Jackson...

I personally think that Jackson needs to address the crumbling infrastructure before what's left of the property owners flee. Look at the plummeting property values in Jackson. There are only a few pockets that hold their value, somewhat, and those are shrinking. We toyed with the idea of moving to the Sheffield area so that the kids could walk to school, but between the constant water and sewer issues, crime, awful roads, it's a no go. Taxes are too high already, for subpar services. I will eat my Seaside cap, UM season tickets, plus my JA and 30A stickers, if there are any measurable improvements for JPS students that result from this boondoggle. Full disclosure; I don't actually have season tickets, but Reunion pineapple didn't seem to imply the level of sacrifice I was going for.

These results sucked, but were expected. For those that feel renters should not have a right to vote in these types of elections, I do not understand why? The rent paid by these people go towards the property taxes paid by the property owners. Am I missing something here? Sure a renter can up an leave after their lease expires, but the rent they paid does contribute towards those property taxes being paid.

Did anyone else put their ballot in what looked like a soft-sided cooler? At Spann we voted in the back of the school (second time I've voted in the back and not the front library area). And I filled out the bubble scantron sheet. But instead of putting it in a computer I was told to put it in a soft-sided box. Procedure was different. I am not saying there was something illegal going on. But I would have liked to have seen my vote scanned.

Anonymous said...

Casey elementary was also placed in a soft sided box... it was odd.

Pete Perry said...

10:21, 3:22, & 4:54.

The process used by the City yesterday for conducting the election was perfectly legal, and also very practical. And it is used in many jurisdictions on a regular basis, although this was only the second time that it has been used in Hinds County/Jackson. (The first time was the special election for supervisor in Districts 2 and 4 a few years ago.)

The process uses a central scanner rather than individual precinct scanners. The ballots are placed into a sealed ballot box (what some have referred to as looking like a soft sided cooler). The box is designed to allow ballots to be inserted, as you did, but is sealed for transport from the voting precinct to the central scanning location.

At the Hood Building (across the street from City Hall) the poll managers did pull up on the street and some young men took the ballot boxes from the vehicles inside to the scanning area. (This is similar to what happens at county elections at the courthouse, when the ballots and other materials are brought back to the courthouse following the close of the polling place.)

Inside, the ballots were removed from the bags - in clear and open view of the public present - and run through a high speed scanner. This system of voting is referred to as a "Central Scanner" process vs. individual precinct scanners where the data is downloaded into a computer system to total for the county. But in the individual precinct system, any outstanding ballots (affidavit, resolution, etc.) are eventually counted via this same central scanner.

The use of this system is actually more secure than the individual precinct scanners, and is much less expensive to the city.

But, I realize, nobody likes change except for a wet baby.

I saw one article on WLBT's web site that said "passage requires at least 60% favorable votes AND at least 10% of the registered voters in Jackson must vote in order for it to pass. Although it appears that it will get the necessary 60% favorable votes, it is not certain that 10% of the registered voters will go to the poll."

I have yet to see if that criteria was met.

Does anybody know how many registered voters there are in Jackson and what percent voted?

Pete Perry said...

3:22 and 4:54, instead of taking 5:57's advice (checking with SOS), I would suggest if you want to check, to ask the Attorney General, since bond issue elections are not controlled by the MS Election Statutes.

Or, one could check the statute yourself: check section 37-59-11(c).

Or if you would like, look at the recent AG opinion issued to the Pearl School District (Opinion #2015-00460) which states that there is no requirement for using electronic voting machines for school board elections, as detailed in Section 23-15-501 of the election code.

Yeah. Warren County (Vicksburg) recently had a school bond election. The voting was NOT in the usual polling places. Instead, voting was done at the two high schools. And the school board paid for it.

It was pretty much set up as a stacked deck. The vast majority of voters who figured out where to vote were the teachers, school workers, and parents of school children.

The folks who were opposed to it were not familiar with voting at a school, were not sure which school to go to, and mostly just didn't bother figuring it out.

I opined on the legality of "how" the election was conducted. I did so based on knowledge and education of the process, and supported my opinion with supporting facts.

The fact that I responded to a couple of folks that questioned the "process" and wondered about its legality speaks nothing to the question of the bond issue itself. But since it appears that in your anonymous state you can't seem to equate differences you consider me a 'shill'? Interesting disconnect.

I don't know what Perry's activities include and wouldn't track his emails or whereabouts if I did know. I'm not a friend who gets his emails nor did I follow his car to the Hood building. All most of us saw/see is him coming to the defense of and expounding on the process. To most thinking people, that might indicate support.

Anonymous said...

4:17, first - you should understand that there is a difference between being a "political" expert and knowledgeable (expert or not) of election law.

Conducting of elections is a whole different ball of wax from politics. Perry was opining on the law, not the subject of the election.

And even after having that explained to you - the difference between the comments made defending the fact that the 'process' was legal (in response to earlier questions about it, since it was not what some were used to) and the fact that there was nothing said in support of the bond issue itself - you continue to try to conflate the two.

Let me suggest that before you sit down at a keyboard again and show your ignorance, you take a minute or two to understand what has actually been said by others, rather than just what you want to interpret and assume to fit your narrative.

As to your not knowing Perry or being on his email list, I'm sure he's glad to learn that! Especially glad to know that you aren't following his car to the Hood building or anywhere else for that matter.

(BTW, as to his being a "self appointed expert" as you say, if I'm not mistaken he has been annointed as an expert in election laws by several different courts in this state over the past few years.)

Hey a$$hat, three folks (10:21, 3:22, 4:54) all seemed to care about 'intracacies- which was the reason for Perry's comments that evidently stocked your fires and charred your buttcheecks. From there you were the idiot who tried to convert support for process into support for the issue - and got called out for your inability to read, comprehend, or even think through basic comcepts.

Maybe you should consider quitting while you are behind - so far behind that every time you chime in with your idiocy (and obvious man-hate-crush on Perry) you dig the hole deeper.

Face it. You were wrong. You screwed up. Wasn't a major deal so get over it. Move on - start hating on Poff, or the sheriff, or whatever is relevant today. You obviously don't know cap about what you say anyway, so why keep trying to justify your existence on this dead horse?

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
