Approve these important levies

Regarding the Friday news story, “Three school districts put levies on ballot”: There is a very important fourth school district that has two levies on the ballot: Granite Falls.

Proposition No. 1 “Replacement of Expiring School Programs and Operation Levy” $4.45 million.

Proposition No. 2 “Replacement of Expiring Technology and School Improvements Levy” $642,000.

These are not new taxes. The levy amounts are the same amounts the tax payers are currently paying.

Remember to vote!

As an added observation: It seems to me that your reporters continually omit important news relating to Granite Falls. Remember that we are a part of Snohomish county.
