It's almost time to vote again

   It is almost time to vote on behalf of children and schools again. The Maintenance and Operations renewal levy is coming up on Tuesday, March 14, 2000.

   The Maintenance and Operations levy funds a substantial piece of basic operating costs, salaries, etc., that are not covered by state funding. Our children need the programs, supplies, librarians, teachers, and other workers that we currently have in place who are not covered by state funds. This levy does not cover new costs, only existing costs.

   As a community, we already voted yes in support of this levy--now it is time to renew it. Please remember to vote on March 14 and vote "yes" in favor of our children and our schools.
