Vote no on school levies

Mr. Jones is wrong (“Support school levy renewals,” Jan. 21), this round of school levies is not the usual replacement category. The legislators last year raised our property taxes statewide to fund schools and also canceled the remainder of school levies across the state. Note nearly all districts are asking for a new levy. These levy requests are not replacement taxes, but may indeed be significant tax increases dependent on the school district when compared with revenues under the previous system.
