We are retired. We have no children or grandchildren attending schools in Monroe. We do have health and mobility challenges. In spite of these issues we are very happy living in Monroe. We have had amazing support from our friends and neighbors who help us, and constantly reinforce our belief that Monroe is a wonderful, caring community.
One way, we feel, we can say “thank you” to our friends and neighbors is by voting “yes” on the school bond. The bond will not increase our tax rate, but it will make our school buildings safer better places for our community children to learn. We are unable to volunteer in the schools, as some of our neighbors do. We have already added our two “yes” votes. Please join us by mailing or taking your ballots to the ballot box at the library before April 28.
