Imagine a community

Imagine a community that cared about all its children, from every home and family background – cared so much that they rallied together to support the education, enrichment, and social, developmental, emotional, cognitive and physical well-being of all those children.

Imagine a community that embodied the values of the true American spirit – that supported the opportunity for each young citizen to work toward the goal of a positive, vibrant, intentional life; liberty to learn more and explore new ideas and pursue big goals; and possibilities to pursue happiness for themselves, their families, their Spokane community and the common good.

Let’s be that type of community, Spokane.

Vote “Yes for Kids” on your ballot for the 2018 levy, which replaces the expiring 2015 levy at a lower tax rate. It’s not a new tax. This levy will help enrich basic education programs and activities that our state does not fund. Science, technology, music, art, school librarians and counselors, school-based nurses and behavior specialists, special education programs, and more – these will all continue to be funded with your support of this levy. As the mom of two elementary children in Spokane, thank you for voting yes.
