Join me in support of the LPOSD levy

Print Article

Adequate funding for public education continues to be a challenge in Idaho, particularly in Bonner County. Good education is critical to creating opportunity for children to succeed in life and become responsible, productive members of society. It is also critical for the long-term economic health of a community.

Quality employers require an educated workforce and they will choose to locate wherever they are guaranteed to find one. We can create long-term prosperity only to the extent that we can adequately prepare our youth for the workforce of tomorrow. LPOSD has come a long way in the last 10-plus years, from one of the worst performing districts in the state to one of the best. We must do everything we can to continue funding education in Bonner County so that our children will be well equipped for the future economy. This is how we create long-term prosperity.

Please join me and vote yes for the levy.
