Preserve education heritage

The Spokesman-Review

I was born and raised in Spokane, and I live in the same neighborhood as I did growing up. My son attends one of the elementary schools slated for replacement upon approval of the March 10 bond/levy measure. My husband is also employed by Spokane Public Schools.

I intend to vote “Yes” on the bond/levy, not only for these reasons but also because in these challenging economic times, when the choices for investing my hard-earned money are mostly dismal, I’m choosing an investment with more than personal monetary gain. It’s an investment in my neighborhood, my community and my son’s education. The returns on that investment: priceless.

As generations of parents have done before us, for us, please join me in voting “Yes” and renewing the commitment the people of Spokane have made to our children and our future.
