February vote for Marysville schools levy important

Our kids. Our future.

The Marysville School District will have a very important levy election on the ballot in February 2023. The students need all that the levy will provide. So if you need to revise your budget, you have time to do it. Then you can delete one more thing from your list of things to do.

Due to the levy that failed this February, and the levy that was rerun and failed this April several important items for the students were reduced or eliminated. Class sizes are larger, and some sports were eliminated, and athletic fees and computer use fees had to be added. I was blessed to have been an educator here in town for 30 years. I continue to have relatives in this caring school district who need a huge voter turnout in February 2023, and your yes vote.

The students will appreciate your yes vote and I will also. Thank you kind Marysville voters.

Our kids. Our future.
