I support the 6.99 mil renewal levy on the ballot November 7, and I support making this a permanent source of funds for the district. With two boys who graduated from Butler High School over the past few years, I experienced the turmoil the district faced when their state funding was cut and teachers were laid off. Over the past 5 years, the administration has done a great job bringing financial stability back to the district while using our resources wisely.
I do support making this levy permanent. The district spends a significant amount of money to put a levy on the ballot, and I feel that money could be better used elsewhere instead of funding this renewal every 5 years. Let’s spend that money on educating the kids instead.
