Vote ‘yes’ for schools in West Fargo

I would like to explain why I am voting “yes” Tuesday for the West Fargo School District bond election. Our daughter graduated from West Fargo High in 2000, and other than being a resident/taxpayer in the district, I really don’t have a dog in this fight.

I became involved over the winter with the school advisory board. I wanted to know from a taxpayer’s perspective where my hard-earned tax dollars were going to be spent. I was concerned that the school district was on track to build a few Taj Mahal schools. I found out I was completely uninformed about the direction the West Fargo School District is headed.

This is some of what I learned. I hope it helps you understand the vote Tuesday.

We should vote “yes” and see that we are prepared to give our future leaders the best education and the most opportunities that the wise use of tax dollars can provide.

Go to the polls Tuesday and exercise your vote.
