We believe this public school supplemental levy debate is about our children and the future of our community.
We can quibble about cents on the dollar, but, this debate is really about the support of public education. This debate is about the difference between cents in our pockets today and investing in the children – investing in the future.
Education is the future. Our democracy and our economy depend upon an educated populace, and public education is the foundation upon which we build. The benefits of investing in education are long term. It takes time to teach, nurture and grow our children to become citizens for the future. It takes a strong foundation to train a workforce for the skilled jobs of tomorrow.
Who among us wouldn’t like more cents in our pockets today? Who doesn’t find it hard to invest for the future? Yet, the future comes, whether or not we are prepared. The brighter future is for those who find the resolve to resist the temptation of immediate gratification today for the promise of a better tomorrow.
Vote with us for the supplemental levy. Vote for the children; invest in the future.
We believe the children are our future.
