I believe passing this bond is a critical piece of the transition in our high school and school district that is being called for. This is not that time or the place to "send a message" by voting no because who we are really then hurting is every child in our school system and those coming to us in the future. I think the work required to build the new high school can serve as the catalyst for many of the things all of across the board we wish to see in order for our children to get the best education possible. Please join me in voting yes for the school bond!
