Our students and community are ‘worth it’
As a young, newly married member of the New Hampton Community School District, I am voting YES on the upcoming school bond election. Graduating from the New Hampton Community School District, New Hampton and the surrounding communities have always had a special place in my heart. Some day, when my husband and I start a family, we want to raise our children in this community and as a Chickasaw! In order to do this, we have a duty to continue to improve the facilities students go to school in. Do I like the idea of my taxes increasing? No, who does? But if we want to continue to have a vibrant, safe community to raise our families in, we have to vote yes! And in all honesty, I feel this is a tiny way of us helping our community and students. On an average $100,000 home, your property tax would increase $83.34 a year. That is a $6.95 increase each month. That is small fraction of an increase compared to the large impact a new school facility would bring to our community and the future of our students. Our students and community are worth it!
