Mill levy and bond issue will helpkeep schools a draw for new families

The Summit School District mill levy and bond issue questions on the Nov. 2 ballot may still be unclear for many voters.For me, this is an easy one. I will be voting yes and try to persuade as many people as I can that it truly is the best way to vote, regardless of your role in this community.The opposition voices that one hears are frequently echoing the same sentiment of hesitation due to the unfortunate circumstances with our previous superintendent.This mill levy and bond have absolutely nothing to do with that issue and would be on the ballot in the exact same form had it never happened.Please do not make the students and school district suffer because of a situation over which they had no control.Our schools are of the quality that they help draw new families to our area, keeping Summit County a successful, viable community. Superintendent Dr. Millie Hamner and the Election Committee are making a valiant effort to educate voters on the importance of the issue. They are visiting organizations throughout the county. Please take 30 minutes to hear what they have to say and give them the opportunity to address any concerns you may have. You will find there are very good and real answers to support the need for this funding.
