ELECTION LETTER: Levy represents 22% of budget

Chimacum School District is asking for your vote for a maintenance and operations levy.

Why should you vote yes?

I’m a teacher at Chimacum High School. I’ve worked in a poor district in which teachers had to share overhead projectors and the roof leaked directly on my teaching station. I’ve taught at an upscale school with closets brimming with fancy gadgets.

This levy won’t make us a fancy school, but it will help keep our schools operating and programs from deteriorating over the next four years. The levy will provide 22 percent of our operations budget.

It’s not a new tax, it’s not a bond, and it doesn’t fund new construction. It just replaces the previous M&O levy from 2014, which voters passed with a 64 percent yes vote.

Ballots are due on Feb. 14. Join me in doing the right thing for our kids.
