Today was the day Bettendorf Schools were hoping to get the OK to make a few upgrades at the high school, middle schools and some of their elementary schools. As I write this, the polls are about to close so I feel okay making another one of my (almost never accurate) predictions.
Keep in mind, my crystal ball ain't so crystal clear and my track record with predicting things has been...not great. Nevertheless, I shall attempt to in my mystical and borderline divine way, ascertain the results of this referendum BEFORE the results are announced.
Judging by the vibe I got at my polling place (very busy...good job everyone!) and the careless assumptions I'm making about the people I saw there, I'm willing to predict that the $30 million bond Bettendorf Schools are looking to get will...NOT get the 60% voter approval required.
