Matt Wright, former head of the 'Vote Yes' campaign, school board member and non-stop social media poster has stepped in it again. He attacked someone for questioning the huge difference between Alcoa school system and Lakeland. Alcoa was questioned because the school board devotes almost 17% of its entire Lakeland Prep presentation to slide talking Alcoa and Greeneville Community Schools, trying to convince everyone we can have what they have for much lower costs. Here we demonstrate that Matt doesn't know what he is talking about.
Lakeland officials and Yes Vote Supporters frequently use the analysis performed by PFM (Public Financial Management, Inc.) to support the proposed Bond Plan. Below, Mr. Matt Wright, from the Lakeland School Board, states this explicitly:
He even claims that they looked at a worst case scenario (to see how this claim is clearly false, go to “Fact or Fiction From Our Bond Company – Property Growth” at http://www.concernedcitizensoflakeland.com/what-you-need-to-know/show-us-the-numbers/item/50-fact-or-fiction-from-our-bond-company.html).

In a recent advertisement in the Lakeland Currents, the “Vote Yes Lakeland” group made the following claim:
This claim seems to be implying that the cause for the apparently skyrocketing home sales in the month of November was the announcement of "Lakeland Prep." Did home sales actually increase? If so, was this caused by the “Lakeland Prep” announcement?
To infer that the increase in homes that closed in November was caused by a “Lakeland Prep” announcement is clearly an example of flawed reasoning, particularly given the delay between the initial offer and the close of the home sale. This is a great example of cherry-picking obscure data to spin a particular, highly-biased viewpoint. But, don’t take our word for it. To find out why, go to Read More...
