Letter about R-P referendum

To the Editor,

PLEASE VOTE YES FOR OUR CHILDREN

Hillary Clinton once said, “It takes a village to raise a child!” What an insightful statement. As adults, we all know it does take a community to raise our children and build a bright future for them. This includes an educational facility that is up-to-date with green spaces, expansion of technology, with a safe environment, and a place that we, as a community, can be proud of endorsing.

The last time a school referendum passed, I was not old enough to vote. But my parents voted “YES” to provide their children with a place to secure an education. This was a time when I know they made sacrifices in their own lives to pay the extra taxes. Now it is time for me to contribute to my grandchildren.

When the initial school was built, my great-great-grandparents voted to build this fortress for future generations. Thus it still stands and has been an institution where past and current students have received excellent educations and many memories were established. But it has stood far beyond its life expectancy.

The State Fire Marshall has been allowing the Rushford-Peterson school district time to correct several fire hazards. They could potentially close our “halls of ivy” if something is not done soon. Do you want your children or grandchildren riding buses to Lewiston, Harmony, Houston, or Lanesboro schools?

I challenge every tax payer in this district to take advantage of the upcoming open houses in Rushford and Peterson to see where our children are spending the majority of their time.

Please help us build for future generations to come, show our children we support their education and vote “YES” on the December 19, 2012, referendum.
