Ada levies deserve voters’ approval

The Ada community has the opportunity to support three issues on the May 7 ballot: Ada Schools’ income tax levy, Apollo Career Center millage and the replacement tax for the Ada-Liberty Township Fire Department.

I have had the privilege of serving as chair of the Ada School Levy Committee, working with many dedicated volunteers who are excited about protecting what we have in the Ada Schools. The committee wishes to thank the residents of the community for your encouragement and support.

The urgency of the .75 percent income tax levy is real. The choices voters make are critically important to the students and residents of the Ada School District. Since Ada Schools received cuts of more than $1.2 million from state and federal funding, it is up to us to furnish financial support through taxes. Let’s continue the winning traditions of Ada Schools. Your yes vote is important.

We have two sons, who are grateful for the excellent academic education they received at Ada High School, plus opportunities involving art, music, and sports. They have said: “We know that you voted for school levies when we were in school, so now we vote for levies in our children’s school districts.” Education is important; it will change the world.

— Connie Fleming, Ada
