Delivering more, at same rate

The Everett School District has a strong history of maintaining stable tax rates. It has also refinanced bonds over the last decade — just as some of us have refinanced our homes. Those bond refinancing actions have saved nearly $25 million for taxpayers — that is money we have not paid in taxes because school leaders are managing our money very carefully.
The district has two measures on the ballot — asking voters for support that is well deserved and vital for students. Voting yes will not raise the tax rate — in fact, we can get the same high-quality education in our classrooms and get new schools and renovations of old schools for the same tax rate we paid last year. Yes, we can get more for the same rate.
That’s why I am voting yes twice, and I hope you are also.
