Community will appreciate your yes vote

I am writing this to appeal to those of you who remember Marysville in the 1970s and how the bond and levy failures affected your children and our community.

You probably knew someone who attended Liberty at one time and you may even remember Liberty being closed and students sent to other schools. Having been one of those students, I remember being a second-grader and having to walk those ominous halls of the Middle School (we were “housed” in one wing – we had to walk through all the big kids to go to lunch or the office) only finally being able to return to my neighborhood elementary (Liberty) school half way through my fifth-grade year. Not surprisingly, my elementary years were not filled with fond memories.

Voters, please do not let this kind of situation happen to our current young students. As you know, Liberty is an older building, but it is a school built on a strong foundation of love/community/family. A new building would continue to provide a safe/secure environment for our Liberty students and families.

All students deserve a place they can feel comfortable and safe in for their elementary years. Your community, your grandchildren, your great-grandchildren, our neighbors, our future depends on your yes vote. Please take the time to vote yes for our bond and levy. Thank you.

And yes, even if you were not living in Marysville in the ‘70s, your community will appreciate your yes vote too.

Thank you to everyone who is willing to remember the children. Our world is a better place because of you.
