Vote yes on 5A, 5B

We have an excellent opportunity to support a brighter future for our community this November. For years, the Douglas County School District board implemented unnecessary austerity measures that stressed the district to its limits.Our hard-working teachers and other employees have endured low pay and have had to make due with limited resources. I saw first hand when my youngest progressed through the special education program, just how strapped these important programs were. For a strong, vibrant community like ours, this doesn’t make sense.  

The new board has realigned its priorities in the right direction, we need to invest in our schools — now.  DCSD needs to make teacher salaries competitive with the surrounding districts and make significant infrastructure improvements.  Douglas County deserves a top-tier, first-class, school district.  We all benefit. Please vote YES on 5 A&B.  It is an investment in our future!
