'This is a now or never proposition'

February 02, 2011 - Dear editor,

I just wanted to share that I attended an informational in-home meeting this week and while I thought I knew a lot about the bond proposal I learned so much.

I encourage you all to dig into the information and become informed, not only for yourselves but so you can accurately spread the word regardless of what side you stand on.

I will tell you I am planning to vote yes and encourage you to do the same.

For all of us with school aged children this is really a now or never proposition. If the bond doesn't pass this year, due to a variety of circumstances, they won't be able to ask again for approximately 8 years.

Our students will be done or almost done with school at that time. By then our schools will be hopelessly behind in technology and our students will pay the price.

And it isn't just them, today's students are tomorrows leaders, they will be our support system in our aging years.

For a yearly cost that is equivalent to less than one months heating bill, or one latte a week we can ensure our children are safe in school and on the bus, literally have a roof over their heads, and are on the leading edge of technology instead of using an infrastructure that was built when cell phones still came in bags.

Please cast your vote Feb. 22. If you can't make it to the polls vote by absentee ballot.
