Letter: Support Evergreen replacement levy


I strongly encourage voters in the Evergreen district to vote “yes” on the school replacement levy. The proposed $1.70 replacement levy rate is the same as the current rate and, paired with the dropping school bond rate, will result in an overall lower school tax for homeowners. This is a replacement levy, not a new tax. The levy, 11 percent of the district budget, pays for many programs that are important for student success. As a former Evergreen school director, I know these funds are crucial to maintain high-quality schools which benefit all of us.
