RE-1 backers meet today

Aspen Times writer

Dear Editor:RE-1 School District is proposing a bond and mill levy override to be put on the November ballot to benefit the Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood schools. Though small groups of concerned citizens have started meeting to educate themselves and formulate a campaign to promote these initiatives, more help is needed. Please do not leave this in the hands of a few citizens when all of our children can benefit! There are many facets of the campaign that need volunteers for this critically important issue. The more citizens that help, the more the workload can be shared and the easier it will be to disseminate the facts about what these tax increases will accomplish for our local children. The campaign will be far less daunting the more people we have involved.Our next meeting is today (July 26) from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Days Inn in Carbondale. We will be educating anyone interested in what these measures entail, what volunteer positions we need to fill, and how our communities can benefit. Please take the time to join forces with this positive movement so that the future of our children, grandchildren, and towns can be improved.Denise Moss, media volunteerBob Johnson, Basalt do-chairMiles Rovig, Glenwood co-chair
