Kids deserve voters’ support

The Spokesman-Review

In economic times like the present it is easy to reject any new or replacement taxes. However, supporting our public schools is an investment in the future of Spokane.

I feel fortunate to have attended school and taught in Spokane. I have seen what a difference a new school has made to the students of Rogers High School where I teach.

As I approach the age of 59, some of my body parts need replacement. So do the schools of Spokane. I went to Ferris when it was new and there were cracks in the walls at that time. The campus design looked great but is not practical. There were portables at Jefferson when I went there and my friend and I set up the tables in the gym so it could become a cafeteria. This same procedure takes place today.

The Spokane community has always supported public education. I am asking you to step up to the plate again during these tough economic times and show the children in Spokane that they will get the modernized facilities they deserve.
