Jackson needs updated facilities
Saturday, March 26, 2005
To the editor:
I would like to encourage my generation to vote for the Jackson School District bond issue. I don't like tax increases, but I will vote for any school bond issue. If we don't keep our schools updated, it will have a rippling effect in our community.
As a construction contractor, it makes more sense to me to build at the current location, because we have a substantial investment in that property. We have a new math and science building, a new multipurpose building and a great football stadium. Why would we want to build a high school elsewhere?
I have eight grandchildren in the Jackson school system. I want them to feel safe when they go to school.
