Our schools are severely overcrowded and in critical need of repair. Children are packed into buildings that have asbestos, leaking roofs, and failing ventilation. A third of our schools have not been renovated in more than a generation. One in five has more students than it can handle, forcing classes into hallways. It will only get worse.

With a half-cent increase in the county sales tax, we will raise the revenue needed to fix our aging schools and bring them up to standard. All the money raised will be spent on school repair and construction. Period. A new volunteer committee will oversee each and every cent to ensure our money is spent appropriately and transparently.
