Yes for Anthony WayneWritten by Autumn Lee | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Will Anthony Wayne voters remember to vote on Aug. 5 if it is a beautiful sunny day (or complete an absentee ballot if they will be on vacation)? Voting is open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and absentee ballot requests must be turned into the board of elections by Aug. 2.
Will they be able to put aside their personal emotions (regarding the nice administration building, previous board decisions, etc.) and realize how important the passage of both levies is to the kids, the community and their property value? Will they remember why they chose to live in this area or why several generations have remained here?
Will they think that voting "yes" on just the renewal levy will be enough?
Will they take the time to research the need for both levies?
Passing just one levy is not enough. Without the passage of both levies, we lose so much @@ teachers, tutors, guidance counselors, nurses, custodial staff, bus drivers, uncrowded classrooms, individual attention to students and so much more. Not to mention teacher’s enthusiasm to teach, children’s excitement to learn, pride in our community and school system.
More information about the levies can be found at www.aw4kids.com and answers can to addressed by calling the school board.
Will the Anthony Wayne voters realize that the renewal levy will not increase taxes? And will they think that that $9 a month (per $100,000 of home value) is a small price to pay to maintain our excellent school rating and community pride?
I have faith in the voters to do the research, ask the questions, take time out of their day and vote "yes" for both levies.
