Letter -- Kennewick schools: Yes

January 27, 2014 

Please mark Feb. 11 on your calendar and join me in voting yes for the Kennewick School District operations renewal levy.

My two sons both received outstanding, well-rounded educations while attending the Kennewick School District from kindergarten through high school because of the many opportunities afforded them while attending Kennewick schools. Many of these outstanding educational opportunities were paid for directly out of levy dollars, such as classroom technology, quality curriculum materials, athletics and other extracurricular activities.

It is also very important to remember that this is a levy renewal -- not a new tax. This two-year levy renewal has been well thought out and provides a great value for our tax dollars and quality education program for our students.

Please support our kids and vote yes by Feb. 11.
