A small price to pay for academics

Dear Editor:

Layup, slam dunk, no-brainer …

This one is easy! TABOR (the Taxpayer Bill of Rights) will not allow our community to increase property taxes to pay for our schools. We want our schools and our kids to succeed. The state can’t get ‘er done, so we have to use our local recourses.

This minimal sales tax increase will allow our schools to continue at a high level. There is a “sunset” clause built in. As a businessperson, family man and community guy, please join me in voting “yuuuuuup” on 2B on Tuesday.
