Children deserve safe place to learn

School district measure on May 20 will not increase tax rates.

School district measure on May 20 will not increase tax rates.

How great that the Renton School District placed a school building funding request on the ballot that will not increase our tax rates. The School Building Improvement bond measure on the May 20 ballot will continue much-needed renovations at our schools and does not ask for one penny more from taxpayers: the measure simply asks for continued support at our current rate.

I want our all of our children to have functional, safe places to learn. If I can give them that and not have to worry about paying more in taxes, I’m all for it. I’m voting YES! in the May 20 election for Renton School District.
