Letter to the Editor: Vote ‘yes’ on Measure U

As a longtime Truckee resident, I have always been a strong supporter of quality local schools. However, I have not always supported local bond measures if they did not provide sufficient detail or safeguards for taxpayers.

I am strongly supporting Measure U. I worked closely with the school district to craft a detailed plan to address the most urgent, high priority repairs in a fiscally responsible manner. Measure U minimizes the long-term costs of school upgrades to local taxpayers and provides strict fiscal accountability and oversight.

Even if you haven’t supported past similar measures, I urge you to join me in voting ‘yes’ on U to improve our Truckee schools and give our students the skills they need to succeed in college and good jobs.
