To the editor:
We strongly support the school bond up for public vote on April 2. This public investment is good for our kids, our community and the local economy. It will allow for much-needed improvements to aging facilities and classrooms, with upgrades slated for every school in the district. It is an important commitment to, and investment in, neighborhood schools.
It is also key to local economic development. As the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce writes in its support of the bond, “strong, successful educational systems are one of the most effective economic development tools for any community.” And this wise investment for a better tomorrow comes without any raise in our property taxes. Please vote on April 2!
