In Their Own Words: Marie Baca
|Aged Roof at ACES|
In the past 22 years, I've seen many changes in the school environment. Safety and security are top concerns of all school districts, including ours. Lack of State funding has left our schools vulnerable in many ways. Our buildings are aging, renovations are needed, technology improvements are needed and new busses are desperately needed. I continue to practice school nursing, and these needs are visible every day.
For the safety and education of our children, we must come together and support Proposition 467, the Capital Improvement Bond. We'll all benefit when our schools are safe, well-maintained, up-to date technologically and able to continue to provide the outstanding education of Tanque Verde Unified School District.

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.
