Great schools help everyone

My wife and I live in Parker and have three sons that attend our public schools. I’ve lived in Parker nearly my entire life. I went to kindergarten at Pine Lane Elementary and graduated from Ponderosa High School. My parents still live in the house where my brothers, sister and I grew up. My family has deep roots in this community and our schools. My mom, brother, father-in-law, sister-in-law and my wife have all worked for Douglas County Schools.

I love my neighbors, my town, and my community. I believe I owe this community my support of 5A&B for our schools. I grew up going to our great schools. My three sons are doing the same now. I want all students in Douglas County to get a great education and we need 5A&B to pass. Our schools desperately need the funding and we haven’t passed a measure like this in over 12 years.

Somehow this became a political issue, and I guess I understand. I just wish our local schools weren’t caught up in the middle of all of it. I hope this community will step-in, take care of each other, and defend our kids and schools by voting yes on 5A&B. Great schools are good for everyone. Please vote yes.
