Feb. 9 school levy vote

87 seconds. That’s how long it will take to complete the ballot you received this week in the mail. Nothing you do could be more important than this. Vote now ... before you answer your e-mails, before you take out the garbage, before you forget about voting to attend to the thousand other distractions you have. All of those pale in comparison to the importance of these three levies.

With three ‘yes’ votes for the school levies, you will secure 25 percent of our district’s budget that funds nearly 100 teachers and critical academic programs, replace worn-out buses, provide technology for our classrooms and address critical building renovation needs. In 87 seconds, you’ll help combat the dramatic funding cutbacks that are expected at the state level. Make sure you turn over the ballot to vote ‘yes’ on the back side, also.

For more information on the school levies, visit www.SchoolLevyYes.org or e-mail questions to info@SchoolLevyYes.org. Three yes votes for schools that take 87 seconds.
