Keep momentum going
A letter printed in your Aug. 16 edition shows why it is so important to get out and vote for the school-funding measures this November. Because if you believe those who supported the previous schoolboard are gone, think again.
Yes, there are still some who think DougCo teachers are overpaid, part-time workers. That a district that last passed a local bond or mill levy 12 years ago doesn’t need another. And that those who own a half-million-dollar house can’t come up with 50 cents more per day to invest in the future of our community.
Look, I’ll stack my curmudgeon credentials against anyone: I’m 55-plus, a lifelong Republican and soon-to-be empty nester. But I’m also someone who is deeply appreciative of the top-quality education and experience that my kids received from DougCo public schools. How selfish and hypocritical it would be to deny the same opportunity to the next generation of students.
I’m proud of Douglas County voters who stood up and righted the mistakes of the past. Now it’s time for that same group to ensure that we keep the positive momentum and provide our schools with the resources they desperately need.
