As a member in your community it is important to voice your opinions and thoughts. A lot of individuals in a community might not feel as involved because they do not have time or they just don’t do it verbally. Voting is one simple way to make a difference in what you feel is right for the community. I will be voting “yes” on this bond that will have a positive effect on local schools and students. Not only in coming years will this bond be noticeable but the next generation will also be beneficial of this bond. This bond is making improvements on job training spaces, technology, equipment, transit, disability access, safety and site improvements such as heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electric, plumbing, and furnishing. While all this is getting done the current tax rate is staying the same and the $185 million dollar bond will be payable from taxes on property and property ownership.
A school bond and school levy are completely different; a bond is debt that must eventually be repaid from interest and a levy is a tax that towns and counties impose on the local property owners in order to raise the money. Voters have a impactful role in voting for school policies. Voting is done to get what the vast majority of the population wants so in a community setting for each voter makes a difference.
One questions I have about voting are; everyone being knowledgeable on the policies? I am a registered Oregon voter and have been since I was 18, it is a way to have an impact in what I would like to see happen in the community and in the United States. Now, take the time to vote because your vote can make a difference.
