A letter from School Board Chairwoman Nancy Carson to voters
The following is a letter from School Board Chairwoman Nancy Carson regarding the school bond referendum that voters will see on the Nov. 5 ballot. I have pasted the letter into this blogpost exactly as she sent it to me, without any edits. I would do the same for any elected official who asked me to. Please direct any questions to Carson.
At election time every candidate has an educational platform to put the children first. As voters of Caroline County we now have the opportunity to put the future of our county’s education first.
Please support the students of Caroline by voting for the (educational) bond referendum. The wording on the ballot maybe confusing. Don’t let the length or wordiness on the ballot persuade you not to vote for the bond referendum.
What is not stated in the referendum is the priority of the safety of the two schools. The referendum would allow not only for renovations, but for insuring that our schools would have updated security systems to address safety issues.
As the black and gold signs throughout the county state “Vote for the children, vote yes for the referendum.” A yes vote for the referendum is a vote in support of the future of the children of Caroline. Don’t they deserve to have schools that are updated and safe?
