School levies must pass during election | Letter to the editor

Posted

You’ll soon see your ballot for the Feb. 8 election and I hope you’ll vote YES on the Port Townsend School District replacement levies. 

With current levies expiring, we must pass these measures if we want to keep our current programs and take care of maintenance needs. These replacement levies will collect a specific amount over the next three years without raising taxes.

State funding doesn’t come close to supporting all the sports and arts programs our young people need. State funds aren’t enough for technology updates and repairs our buildings need. The seismic retrofit for the high school will make the building safer and prolong its useful life. Solar panels at Salish Coast Elementary will bring long-term energy savings.

As a retired teacher, I can’t imagine how staff and students have been coping in these times. 

Please join me with an enthusiastic yes to show our support for our young people and public education.
