Backs Meridian schools levy

I am voting yes on Proposition 1, which will replace the current Meridian School District levy expiring at the end of 2016. When state funding does not fully cover staffing needs for school nurses, librarians and counselors, these levy funds help fill the gap. When technology equipment needs support and updating, levy funds make sure our students have access to technology. Football and Math Club alike are supported by this levy, as are all extracurricular activities. This is not a new tax, merely a replacement of an expiring levy. I strongly urge neighbors and community members to support education in this critical levy by voting yes when you receive the ballot for the Meridian levy.
