"People don't pay their fair share and everybody else pays more," said Kromko, a former legislator and retired teacher.

John Kromko, head of the Pima Association of Taxpayers, said his members had met with the Governing Board to express their concerns.
"With a swap, there's no open bidding," he said.
"There's no opportunity for someone to say, 'Wait.
We'll give you more.' "
Kromko suggested the district could have had more bargaining power if it first had the property rezoned for its highest and best use, such as an apartment complex or for commercial uses.
Kromko contended that an earlier swap of district-owned land in the lower Catalina Foothills in exchange for a Southwest Side site was a bad deal when it was approved in December, so his members will look critically at all future swaps.
"When you look at TUSD's land dealings, they've been terrible for years," he said.
