School Endorsement (Louise Boli)

“I have been a proud member of this community for many years and that continues to be the case. I am also a someone who believes that our schools are a true reflection of who we are as a community. A vote in favor of the bond issue for a new middle school on the February 2nd ballot will demonstrate not only to surrounding communities, but to the children who live in our district the importance we (adults) place on education.

Having said that, I have taken the opportunity to vote early and would like to express my opinion about the ballot language since it is contrary others who have written letters that were published. After reading all the information supplied by the school district and then the information on the ballot, the message was the same. You can vote for or against the taxes necessary to construct a new middle school. That tax includes a 2.9 mills for the actual construction of the building and .5 mills that the State requires for building maintenance. After calculating this increase on my taxes, it compares to what the school literature stated. The combined millage will cost the owner of a $100,000 home $118 per year. No information has been hidden from us.

I am glad I took the time to become an informed voter. It help me make a wise choice in favor of good schools for our community’s children.”"
