Please vote “yes” on the MUSD override continuation!
The upcoming vote on Nov. 2 is for continuing the school district budget increase we Maricopa voters approved in 2016. It helps make up for reductions in school funding coming from the state, where the legislature has a history of meager education funding. For more than 30 years, Arizona has experienced a decline in public education budgets, leaving us near the bottom of the country.
Our school districts do their best to do more with less, but this override is critical for investing in new technology, for the important RAM Academy high school graduation program and for maintaining approved class sizes.
We all want the best education possible for our children, for their adult futures and for the future of our city and state.
Please join me in voting “yes” for the MUSD override continuation.
