On March 12, Bonner County residents will have an opportunity to support local public schools by voting “yes” on a replacement supplemental levy. I encourage you to support this levy.
This two-year levy replaces funding that has expired. It is not a new tax.
This levy would cost taxpayers less than $19 per month on a $200,000 house. This is the best use of twenty bucks you’ll ever find. It pays for all extracurricular programs at the schools, all curriculum materials, many technology upgrades, and a good chunk of district staff.
I have three children in three different LPOSD schools. I volunteer in classrooms every week and our family donates money and supplies to our underfunded schools. I see firsthand every day what this levy means to our children, our schools, and our community.
Please join me in voting “yes” on the replacement supplemental levy.
