Strong schools are the foundation of a strong Marysville

Nonprofit Best Schools Marysville rallies in support of February school levy

Ron Friesen, a retired Marysville School District band teacher, first moved to Marysville in 1975. At the time, Marysville School District was in rough shape, and Friesen and his wife planned to move away when they had children.

But after years of support by the community and the passing of levies and bonds, the School District rebounded.

“Strong schools sustain a strong community,” says Friesen as he rallies support for the Feb. 14, levy. Friesen and other concerned citizens have joined together in a nonprofit called Best Schools Marysville. Their goal is to build a better Marysville and help pass the Educational Programs and Operations Levy on Feb. 14, 2023.

Cindy Gobel, committee chair of Best Schools Marysville, stresses the importance for a yes vote. “If the community doesn’t support the levy, eventually OSPI steps in and the School District could become insolvent. There is a lot at stake for our children and families that call Marysville home,” Gobel says.

Friesen alongside teachers, business owners, city leadership, parents and volunteers know that having the best schools will build the best community. Best Schools Marysville supports passing levies and bonds to create a strong economic foundation that further develops the city of Marysville.

Feb. 14, vote yes! Support Best Schools Marysville.
