Importance of education

Dear Editor:I write this letter to urge citizens of the RE-1 School District to vote yes on 3A and 3B. There is a great informational Web site,, that can answer tax questions and give bond issue details, but I’m writing to remind us all how truly valuable education is. The future of democracy lies in kindergarten! Our kids deserve to learn reading, writing, arithmetic and how to make decisions. And they deserve to learn in safe, functional facilities. Tax dollars fund public education, and public education is the opening door for a majority of the children in this valley. Support 3A and 3B and support the kids. Who knows, we may just teach a future president!Tracy BennettBasalt
