Letter: Making an informed decision

Why am I voting yes for the Renville County West bond election? My husband and I own land in the district. Our taxes will increase.

My taxes will increase either way the vote goes. If yes passes, my taxes will go toward a new school. If no passes, my taxes will go toward a health and safety levy to repair old buildings. Eventually my taxes will go to build a new school. If it isn't in the RCW district, I will be assigned to another school district and pay taxes in a neighboring community. My yes vote allows me to invest my tax dollars in my own community.

I have read the newsletters; I have listened to the presentations; I have reviewed the school's Web site; I have asked questions and been informed. This is what education is all about, learning about your options, and deciding what option to choose. Voting yes is my informed decision.
