A civic good for county
Sandy and I are senior citizens and have lived in Douglas County for 42 years as homeowners. Our local news comes primarily from your paper. We believe in the need to support public schools and those who work in them. There is more to life than just keeping taxes as low as possible for ourselves. There is a need for civic good for our community and the county.
If this bond issue of $250 million passes this November the district will still stay behind in funding because of the continuing population growth. On average, how much of a pay raise will the $40 million mill levy override give to the teachers and support staff?The district will still be thousands behind the Littleton and Cherry Creek school districts. Why did the “reform” board support the voucher payments for private schools while opposing tax increases needed for our public schools? The need for the bonds is overdue. Improve our public school system.
