To the Editor,

I had the privilege of attending the informational meeting in Harmony on Monday night, for the purpose of discussing the proposed school referendum election (Fillmore Central).

First of all, I would like to thank the school board and the administration for taking the time to put together the materials provided to the public, as well as the time required to provide this forum of open discussion of this issue of critical importance to the families of ISD 2198.

I am very thankful for both the educational and extra-curricular opportunities afforded my children, and I think we all realize that keeping the wonderful variety of offerings we have come to expect requires a significant commitment of financial resources.

In these days of constantly expecting more for less, we have been offered a wonderful opportunity to show the State of Minnesota, in leading by example, that we, the residents of the Fillmore Central School District, are committed to excellence in education. And in doing so we will truly, in a big way, get more for less. The State has basically said, Show me that you are willing to support your school district, and we will too! In fact, for every $42 Im willing to contribute, the State will contribute an additional $58.

Wanting to really see concrete numbers for my little piece of the puzzle, I took the figures and formulas provided by Superintendent Berkland and the School Board, along with my Property Tax Statement from last year, and my tax valuation for this year, and this is what I learned; (Obviously, the results for each piece of property will vary).

If I vote for this referendum, the school portion of my property taxes will Decrease by about $14.25 compared to last year. In return for my support of my school district, the State will add their additional support and the net gain to the school district will be just over $212 in additional funding. I pay a little less, and my school district gets a lot more!

So the question is, Am I willing to show the State of Minnesota that the Fillmore Central School District is worth supporting? Absolutely.

Please vote Yes on November 6. The kids of our communities, our future leaders, are counting on you.
