In the mail­bag this morn­ing we find this let­ter from Martha Alvarado…

Dear edi­tor-

On Feb­ru­ary 11th our com­mu­ni­ty will be vot­ing on a replace­ment capi­tol & tech­nol­o­gy levy for our schools. Vote YES for our schools! This is NOT a new tax, but a renew­al of the one that has exist­ed for many years. Our com­mu­ni­ty needs this levy!

This levy com­pris­es 17% of our schools’ bud­get and cov­ers a host of things that the state does not fund: a school nurse, art teach­ers in the ele­men­tary and high school, the music pro­gram, coun­selors, food ser­vice and so much more.

This is not just about my chil­dren, or your chil­dren, but about strength­en­ing our com­mu­ni­ty. I would like to encour­age you, as neigh­bors and friends, to vote YES for our local school levy.

Thank you,
Martha Alvarado
