In Their Own Words: Al and Anne Velosa

We moved to the Tanque Verde Unified School District in 2009. In the years since, we have taken pride in our schools and the education they gave our children.

But they need our help now. After years of state underfunding of capital for school facilities maintenance, our schools are suffering. The district is asking our help to repair and preserve the schools. Faced with aging buildings and equipment, and amid new concerns about school safety and security, there now exists a critical need for capital funding for our schools. The "band-aid" fix approach cannot continue. We can and should come together as a community to provide local support of our community's most valuable assets.

We must act now to ensure the continued quality and safety of our schools. We do this for our community, our students, our future American workforce, and our property values. Please take action by approving this funding initiative for our local schools.

VOTE YES for Proposition 467 on November 6th to approve the TVUSD Bond.

In Their Words is a series in which we share letters written in support of the Budget Override and Bond ballot measures. These letters will appear in the Voter Information Packet provided by Pima County to voters. We will also include original missives by members of the Tanque Verde community.
