Marysville voters, show that you care for students here in our fine town.

You should have already received your ballot for the upcoming Feb. 11, Marysville School District capital levy to rip down Liberty Elementary School and Cascade Elementary School here in town.

My first teaching assignment as a teacher was in 1967 at Liberty for five years. It wasn’t a dinosaur then, but it is now. I ended my 30-year teaching career at Cascade. I taught second grade for a while but loved first grade more, and I taught the most years at that level. Liberty was built in 1951 and it needs to be ripped down, and rebuilt, and so does Cascade.

I would be sad if my granddaughter who will soon be in kindergarten had to attend either of these two dinosaur schools. Go visit them, and you will learn pronto what I’m describing. Ripping these schools down would be the best possible start for children.

This levy has to pass by simple majority. The passage won’t ruin anyone’s budget. The passage of this levy is important to the future generations of students in this Marysville School District because I’m telling you the truth. Show that you care about our students in Marysville and future generations.
