We are proud parents of two students in the Everett Public Schools. When we decided to raise a family, we were drawn to Everett because of the strong community we saw, and the support it provides all, but in particular to our kids.
Since then, we have not been disappointed. And like so many of you, we are personally and professionally invested in both making Everett a better place to live, and in helping all Everett residents have better opportunities in life.
There are two ballot issues on Feb. 8 that are vital to the continued success of the Everett School District. The Educational Programs and Operations Levy funds 14 percent of the costs to run schools and after school activities. The capital levy is equally important and ensures that every student has technology and also has many projects to keep our schools in good condition and safe. Please remember these are replacement levies that begin after the old levies expire at the end of this year. Please help continue our legacy of strong community values by voting yes to both issues in February.
