A vote for 3E is a vote for education

Dear Editor:

If our local economy and jobs are something you think about these days, then consider that great schools are a major component in attracting and retaining businesses and employees. In order to be perceived as a healthy community with solid schools to support our business base, we need outstanding and adequate numbers of teachers, updated technology and learning materials and maintained facilities that are top notch – as we have always had in the past.

Investing in education is absolutely and inherently part of supporting community and keeping business strong. That’s why I am voting yes on 3E this fall and hope you will too. For more specific information about the ballot question, go to voteforourkids.org.
