In Their Own Words: David Bradley
|An old AC unit on TVUSD campus|
I can attest to the fact that in Arizona, State funding for new capital projects and current school maintenance has been significantly reduced during the past ten years, amounting to statewide cuts of more than $2.3 billion. For TVUSD, this has resulted in over $4.4 million in cuts. These cuts have led to a backlog of maintenance on buildings with leaking roofs, and equipment such as old and malfunctioning air conditioners. In addition, TVUSD has been forced to utilize outdated structures for some classrooms.
It is of the utmost importance that students today graduate with the skills needed to be contributors to our community and more broadly our State. A YES vote on Proposition 467 will ensure that Tanque Verde Unified School District has the necessary funds to provide adequate facilities and structures to keep students safe, and facilitate ongoing high academic achievement and educational success-things for which TVUSD is well known.
Please vote YES on Proposition 467 for our students, our community, and our State.
State Senator for Legislative District 10
