Former Bay County Florida school board member Ryan Neves opposes tax hike


PANAMA CITY — Ryan Neves, who served as a Bay District School Board member for 12 years, said he will vote against Bay District Schools’ April 20 referendum to raise property taxes to fund teacher pay hikes.

Neves put an ad in Sunday’s edition of The News Herald that stated the school board’s recent 5-0 vote to ask taxpayers to fund operational expenses was “baffling” to him. He stated that a tax proposal to pay for day-to-day expenses would be bad for business, no matter how well-intentioned.
