Regarding the upcoming vote for the Kamiah school levy, please vote yes. I regard it as a payback obligation. We have all benefitted and prospered from our own education. And we got it for free. Someone else paid for it when we were kids. If you can read this, you can read it because of that free education we all received. Now it’s our turn.
I have been in that school. I am here to tell you that no money is wasted. The Kamiah school system operates on less than a bare bones budget. So help those kids get a fair shot at a quality education just as the people who came before us gave us our free opportunity.
Anyone who ever was a kid or ever had a child is a debtor to the educational systems and to those people who paid for them. It is time to repay some of that debt.
That is the honorable thing to do. Please be honorable March 11. Vote yes.
