As a senior citizen, a property owner, and a grandparent, I urge you to vote for the upcoming supplemental Kamiah School levy on March 11. We have an obligation and the opportunity to make sure our kids and grandkids get a well-rounded education like we did. Back then, when we were in school, levies were rare, but times have changed and there aren’t the forest funds and state funding to provide a decent education for our young people. Like many of you seniors, I so miss the music program in Kamiah. We all came together as a community and were so proud of all our young people. I miss the Christmas and spring concerts and having our band play at the games. We need to invest in our school, as a community – to make it strong again. We need to exercise our right as American citizens to vote on what’s really important to all of us – our kids, our grandchildren, our friends and our town. Let’s not become a retirement community. Let’s come together and support this levy. I hope to see all of my fellow seniors at the polls!
