3E a vote for the future

Dear Editor:

I am writing in support of Proposal 3E to help with the budget for the Roaring Fork School District. Both as a substitute teacher and a parent, I believe it is in our best interest that we make sure our students are getting the best education possible for them to help with our future. I see on a frequent basis what is happening in our classroom and the teachers that we have. To lose one of them because we don’t want to have our property tax added to, is allowing us to say our future is just not that important.

I say our future, because one day these students will be in the workforce making a difference in the fields of education, medicine, research, engineering, computer technology, business and many other fields that will contribute to our standard of living as we retire. It is a small price to pay in order that we as a community continue to prosper and thrive in the state and in the world.

It was a disappointment to learn that Colorado is ranked 40th Jill Beathard 10/5/11 accurate? in spending per pupil among the states. That to me says that we do not think enough of ourselves or our children to want to have educated Colorado citizens in our state.

Please join me in voting yes to Proposal 3E so that we can all continue to enjoy our standard of living now and into the future.

Diana Elliott
