On September 10, and previously on May 7 of 2019, voters in Dickinson overwhelmingly voted down a bond scheme to fund the construction of a new $89 million high school.
The main reason why people in the Dickinson area voted against building a new high school, is because it would have cost the average homeowner about $500 more per year in property taxes, and the average apartment dweller about $250 more per year in rent.
In general, the people in Dickinson are cheap, so cheap, that they would rather have repeat offender meth addict drug dealers and thieves running loose on the streets of Dickinson, than have to pay to keep them in prison where they belong.
I am glad that the vote for funding the construction of a new high school in Dickinson failed, because I want to see everyone in Dickinson get what is coming to them, after the way the people here treated the out-of-state workers during the oil boom. No new school for you.
If you drive through the downtown main street of Belfield, New England, Richardton, Taylor, or Gladstone, this is what Dickinson would have looked like, had it not been for the oil boom, a ghost town. And, this is what Dickinson will return to.
Even though I want Dickinson to whither and decay out of hatred, the local people in Dickinson want this same thing, only they think that it would be great if everyone moved away.
Besides me and the local people in Dickinson wanting everyone to move away from Dickinson, the Governor, North Dakota legislators, and everyone in Fargo, Jamestown, Grand Forks, and Bismarck would like everyone to move away from Dickinson too, so that the oil revenue money could be spent elsewhere, not wasted on services and infrastructure for the backwards, primitive, oil-field trash in Dickinson.
The blue-collar, oil-field trash in Dickinson will buy a $50,000 to $80,000 Ford or Dodge pickup, then go pay another $2,500 for big tires and wheels, they probably spend about $1,000 per year on cigarettes, but hell no they won’t pay $500 for a new high school.
