Help support Park County schools

Monte Gore Fairplay

I would like to encourage voters to support the Park County RE-2 school district Nov. 2.In a comparison study with surrounding communities it becomes quite apparent that our school district is well behind other districts. Other districts have approved these kinds of overrides to bolster school support. 1. Summit County – $1,778,2292. Buena Vista – $879,8903. Salida – $664,6074. Woodland Park – $1,100,0615. Cripple Creek – $583,9826. Platt Canyon – $210,000The total amount of money that the Park School District is asking for is a one mill increase that would translate to $8 for each $100,000 worth of property valuation. This is, frankly, quite cheap.Bottom line: For about the price of a lunch you help the Re-2 School District to supplement its funding by about $207,000.This would include Fairplay, Guffey and Lake George. I would encourage voters to invest in their youth; vote yes on ballot question 3A.
