Vote yes on levies for deserving Marysville students

Many of us live here in our fine city of Marysville, many who are retired, and many of us who taught happily here in Marysville for years. Many of us have darling grandchildren in the schools here. We want the best for our kiddos.

Marysville overwhelming voted yes a few years ago for the civic center that will open this summer. Now it’s time to step up for the betterment of the exemplary, caring, kind students in our Marysville School District. By voting yes, you will definitely show the students how much you care for them, which means that you love them, and that their present and future are important to these wonderful deserving students.

How would you have felt as a kid if voters didn’t approve levies and bonds when you were in school? I never felt sad because in my school district in Columbia Falls, Mont., the voters always always said yes to the kids!

Before Feb. 8, you will be able to show the students here in our great city that you care for them right now, and that you care for their future days.

It’s high time to renew your commitment to the exemplary students here in Marysville. Do you care about the future of our schools and students in our fine city?

The two replacement levies have a combined tax rate that reduces the “burden” to taxpayers by 30 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value. That should make all voters very very happy for sure.

“Vote yes” signs in this fine city will be visible very soon. We will probably do some sign waving so I hope to see you waving your sign. Please respect and heed what this letter says, and what the signs will say. You can even honk if you see us happily waving our signs!

Vote yes on Feb. 8. Ballots will be mailed soon.

Please join me in voting yes for a million important reasons.
