Keep District 46 momentum

To the Editor:

School board members should make decisions that balance the needs of our students and employees with the limited resources available from our taxpayers.

I believe that for the 10 years that I have been on District 46’s board, we have been moving in the right direction. We are hiring dedicated, talented employees and are providing wonderful programs to help students of all abilities. We have abated the bond and interest funds to provide taxpayer relief, and our property tax levy has stayed level or decreased while neighboring districts raised theirs.

These steps have resulted in $3.9 million left in our taxpayers’ pockets, while our test scores soared. We also added transparency by opening our committee meetings to anyone who wants to participate. An opposition group is pushing for change, but I think we should keep this momentum going. Please vote for me if you agree.
