It’s time to support our kids, our school

I am a 1989 graduate of Gainesville High School, a lifelong member of this community and a second-term school board member at Gainesville R-V. 

No one likes a tax increase. The bottom line, however, is that our aged facility needs attention, and Gainesville R-V School needs the support of this community.

I could spend time writing about federal, local and state tax dollars that provide funding to this district. But more importantly I urge you to:

• Get accurate information about the financial and building plans.

• Find out your own personal tax increase. Of course, it will affect some more than others, based on your assessed valuation.

• Most importantly, make an educated, well-informed decision based on the facts.

It’s time to give.

It’s time to step up and vote yes.

It’s time to come together in support of our kids and our school.

There’s nothing better to give our kids than an investment in their education.
