Vote ‘yes’ on 3B for schools

The bottom line is, no good can come out of trimming $2 million more from the school district budget. Cutting more programs and more teachers is not the answer. The school district has already tightened its belt. Salaries have been frozen for all district employees, employee benefits have been restructured, and cuts have been made to programs, athletics, stipends and maintenance contracts. There’s nothing more to cut without making significant, drastic cuts that will affect students in the classroom.

The 2007 mill levy expires this year. The school district is asking to retain just 32 percent of that mill levy. A yes vote on 3B will actually result in a reduction in your current taxes. Property taxes will be reduced by $20 per year per $100,000 of a home’s market value, or $80 reduction for a $400,000 home.

Please support our local schools and reduce property taxes below the current level. Vote YES on 3B!
