Local Business Owners
As local business owners, Republicans and parents of five boys, we believe in fiscal stewardship and appropriately sized government. That’s why we support conservative policies limiting our taxpayer dollars to core functions. People choose to live in our communities because we have excellent property values and low crime. Our schools play a key role in keeping it that way. Land values will decline if we do not provide the education infrastructure for our future workforce.
- Both issues on the ballot support our community’s important education needs without raising taxes.
- The Maintenance and Operations override is not a tax increase – it is a continuation of the local funding that our schools have had in place for the past 23 years.
- The secondary property tax rate for the critical needs bond is expected to remain at or below $1.48, which means the tax rate will not increase.
