Vote yes on the School Bond | Letter

In a few weeks voters on Lopez and Decatur will be asked to approve a construction bond for Lopez School District. The proposed bond will be significantly different from the one that failed to gain voter approval last year.

This bond omits improvements some voters felt were unnecessary or too expensive in the previous proposal. And it will cost 40 percent less.

Please pay attention to the information that the school district will be providing in the coming weeks. If you were a “no” vote last time, you might wish to vote “yes” this November. And a visit to the school to see and learn about its serious needs for refurbishment and updating is likely to be convincing as well.
