Whatever stage of life you find yourself––regardless of whether you have school age children, are newlywed, a retiree or anywhere in between––we all benefit from great schools. Past generations built schools for children who are now grown up, and we should support our future generations by building schools for them.

As you think about how to vote on the school bond coming up in February, I urge you to remember that these children—your neighbors—will one day be your doctor, your mechanic and your policy maker. And remember, this is not a new tax. It replaces the previous bond that expires this year. Your local school tax rate will actually go down a bit when this bond passes.

When one of us is lifted up, we are all uplifted. Great communities support great schools, and our KP community is our strength. Vote yes for us all.
