I’m voting YES for the 1/2 percent sales tax increase and YES for the 9-mill property tax increase on Nov. 4.
After reading the facts presented by the USD 257 school board and opinions presented by those for and against the building of the new schools, I am strongly in favor of the project.
I agree with all the reasons presented by the people who have written to the editor of the Iola Register in support of building the new schools now.
We can’t afford to let the 51 percent funding from the state for the construction of new schools to slip by.
It’s time to say YES-YES for the welfare of our community and the students who will attend our schools.
