Letter to the Editor: Voicing our support for Measure A

We are writing to express our complete support for the essential funding of Measure A. We urge all residents to vote for Measure A which is such a vital part of educating our students.

Without supplemental funding obtained from Measure A, our children would not benefit from the programs that lack funding by the state such as music, updated technology and advanced placement classes. Our local schools have allowed our children to be challenged, well-educated, excel in athletics and music due to the support of the community, teachers and additional funding received from Measure A.

The most compelling example is the necessary funding to keep the band programs in place, which is without question one of the greatest attributes of our local schools. We urge you to support Measure A to keep the necessary programs in place to continue the success of our local students .
