School bond support | Letter
March 4, 2013 · Updated 12:38 PM
I urge you to vote for the campus wide renovation Bond on the April ballot.
There are many reasons this is a timely opportunity including $750,000 in energy savings, necessary systems and facility repairs or replacements, rock bottom interest rates, and to increase significantly the efficient and effective use of classrooms, programs, and curriculum for students and staff for the next 30 years.
The cost per $100,000 assessed value will be $68 and seniors over 61 years of age or anyone 100 percent disabled living in their primary San Juan County residence at least six months of the year with disposable household income less than $35,000 may qualify to be exempt from paying the school bond levy, as well as the maintenance and operation levy of local schools.
I believe our Lopez community has a huge capacity for vision as actualized in our library, our solid waste facility, our emergency services, the Community Land Trust, the Family Resource Center and countless other places and programs.
I believe this capacity for vision includes our children and our school. Vote Yes For Lopez in April.
