As concerned Lakewood business owners, we are asking you to please take time to learn about a very important issue facing our community.
On February 9, the Clover Park School District will be asking the citizens of Lakewood to approve a bond measure that will help achieve necessary and critical educational, safety, technological and structural improvements for the district. All of these capital improvements will be without increasing our tax rate – it will simply be a continuation of the existing 2010 tax rate.
If passed, money from the measure will go toward a rebuilt Hudtloff Middle School, a consolidated Oakwood/Southgate Elementary School, and a new building to house the successful Harrison Preparatory program. ALl of these schools are well past their projected life expectancy. Rebuilding them will help build excellence, save money in the long run, and keep children safe.
Out reasons for support of the bond measure are, perhaps, selfish. Neither of us have children attending school in the district, but we realize that good schools make Lakewood a more desirable place to live and work, and it increases its over quality of life. And there’s no dispute that a community’s property values increase as the quality of that community’s schools improve. Quite simply, it’s a sound business investment.
As such, we ask for your support of the Feb. 9 bond measure. Whether that support is through a monetary contribution to the campaign, a simple endorsement, volunteering, or advocacy, we need your help! If you would like to be added to our growing list of individuals and/or businesses which support the bond measure, go to www.CloverParkCitizensForSchools.com.
That you! Please join us in support of this bond measure and vote YES for schools on Feb. 9!
