In Their Words: George & Charlene Atkinson
In Their Words is a series in which we will share letters written in support of Budget Override and Bond ballot measures. These letters will appear in the Voter Information Packet provided by Pima County to voters. Photos are shared with permission from TVUSD.
As residents of the Tanque Verde school district, we take pride in the quality of our schools, and we understand how quality schools and programs strengthen our community.
We also recognize the importance of providing local funding for our schools, which we demonstrate by supporting local school bonds and overrides. This locally controlled funding allows the district to provide the programs and services critical to the success of our students and the stability of our community. In 2014, we came together as a community and passed a Budget Override in support of our local schools. That override can be renewed now - without changing our tax rate.
As concerned citizens, we cannot overstate the importance of a quality education for our children and grandchildren. With locally approved funding, we can support our schools and ensure they have a better foundation for their future success.
We strongly encourage you to join us in voting yes on the Budget Override!!
