Letter: Ridgefield bond has benefits


Citizens of Ridgefield, please vote “Yes” for Proposition 7. This school bond measure includes a new metal shop at Ridgefield High School. Introduction to trade/skill work is something our students desperately need and should have access to.

As an employer in the metals industry, I can assure you that there is a high demand for skilled labor. These jobs are high-paying and the work is steady. Introducing students to trade/skill opportunities as young adults is a step toward long-term community stability. Your vote of “Yes” on Proposition 7 provides our students a stable future full of equitable opportunity.
