My small Monroe restaurant survived the recession. Thank you all for your support! We source bread, meat and vegetables locally as much as possible. It’s healthier for customers and one way I can help local farmers and bakers — who, like me, are small businesses.
Buying local is one thing we all can do to build a strong local economy, future and sense of community. One more: vote yes for the school bond!
a) Taxpayer value: we can get $21.3 million in matching funds, while not increasing our tax rates — an amazing value.
b) Community safety and stability: Supporters include Monroe Fire Department, the Chamber of Commerce, City Council, and YMCA, as well as the Everett Herald, Legends Baseball Club, Monroe Youth Football — and a ton of local businesses.
c) Our future: today’s students are tomorrow’s employees, customers, business owners, civic leaders … and neighbors! Let’s “pay it forward” for their benefit — and ours!
d) Your friends endorse this: voters with and without kids in the schools, commuters and people who work nearby, small and large businesses, newcomers and legacy families, people who lean left and right, are supporting a “yes” vote. Go to www.voteyes4monroeschools.org and see how many of your friends endorse this.
Please join me and many people and organizations working for Monroe’s future. Vote “Yes” on the school bond!
