Vote for strong schools

 

Living in North Idaho is a privilege. Community members have great access here: access to adventure, scenery, work and education. It is important to each community member in Kootenai County that this continues at every level, personally and professionally. This is exactly what the Coeur d’Alene School District’s upcoming bond intends to provide to our community children: quality educational access.

As a resident, to have ultimate access we need to continue growth. As a member and the president of the Kootenai County Young Professionals, this growth is vital to this nonprofit organization’s vision statement: “to attract, connect and retain young professionals in our community.” Our members are locals and new residents looking to make a connection to a growing community while also stepping in to be active, young leaders.

We’ve all heard how important it is to keep our talent local. This enriches each of us personally and professionally. Growth begins at our schools and providing our area children with safe buildings for learning. This is as simple as voting for the continuation of funding for public school buildings. Take the time to be educated on this issue and take action by voting for the bond Aug. 28.
