Our children in the Oklahoma City area deserve decent school buildings and learning materials in order to prepare for college and the workforce.
That is why local voters need to get to the polls today (October 9) and vote “Yes for Kids,” which is a $248.3 million bond issue that will continue the success of the Maps for Kids program in Oklahoma City Public Schools.
The bond issue, which will not raise taxes, will go to improving the district’s basic infrastructure, such as buildings and classrooms, providing new technology equipment for classrooms, improving the transportation system and better security. The proposed spending plan is logical, reasonable and far-sighted.
The issue needs a “super majority” of 60 percent yes votes in order to pass. Do not count on others to ensure the bond issue passes. Our kids need your vote.
(Here is an article I wrote for the Oklahoma Gazette about the bond issue.)
