Ada schools doesn’t

play second fiddle

Thank you. Those two words are the first thing that came to mind when my daughter recently started kindergarten and I had an opportunity to wander the halls of the Ada Schools. We have a tremendous facility and I am truly appreciative that the people of the community stepped up to go above and beyond the minimum to build it for our children’s education. Why did this get done? Because the people of this great community feel the same as I do. We are proud to be able to say that we are from Ada. A common bond that we have in Ada is our school. This community pride has been exhibited in the past support that has been given to the school.

I am the first to say that I do not want new taxes. I have equated new taxes on the state and federal levels to wasteful and unnecessary spending. I can honestly say that this is not the case with our local schools. Declining financial support from the state is at the core of our financial problems. I encourage anyone with questions about the finances of our local schools to talk with our administrators. Decisions that have been made have been done with purpose.

The reason that I am supporting the upcoming income tax levy for the Ada Schools is because I want to give my children the same educational opportunity that I was given when I went to school at Ada 25 years ago.
