Vote ‘yes’ on Camas school levies for ‘stronger, more resilient community’
As Camas’ mayor and a long-standing member of the Camas community, I am writing today with a matter of great importance and urgency — the Camas School District’s educational programs and operations levy and capital levy that will be set before us on Feb. 13.
Having lived in Camas for 40 years and seen my children flourish within the Camas School District, I have experienced firsthand the outstanding quality of education and the nurturing environment our schools provide.
The strength of our schools is the bedrock of our community. It is about providing quality education to our children and fostering a vibrant community that continues to attract businesses and families alike. Strong schools are a testament to our commitment to the future. That commitment is a signal to companies that we value a skilled and educated workforce. It also assures parents that their children’s futures are bright and promising.
The replacement levies are not merely a financial decision but a continued investment in our children, community and future. The funds from this levy will ensure that our schools can continue to provide excellent educational programs, maintain smaller class sizes, support extracurricular activities and offer competitive salaries to attract and retain the best teachers and staff. These are the components that make our schools exceptional and our community desirable.
The need for robust educational systems is more critical than ever in a time when the world is rapidly changing. Our commitment to maintaining and enhancing the quality of our schools through this levy is a clear message that we are prepared to invest in a future that is dynamic, innovative and prosperous.
