SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Former Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is encouraging South Bend voters to raise property taxes for school improvements and salary increases in the June 2 election. Voters are being asked two questions: $54 million to update safety and security, and an additional $20.8 million a year for eight years to pay for things like increased teacher salaries. Taxpayers would see an increase in property taxes of about 40 cents for every $100 of assessed value. Buttigieg says the plan will keep the district's progress moving.

When I was 16 and people with whom I agreed burned the flag, and people with whom I disagreed used the flag as a weapon, my dad said to me, “It’s our flag, too.”

If I had a tattoo, that’s what it would say, “It’s our flag, too.”
