Tonasket Chamber supports school levy

Dear Editor,

I am writing on behalf of the Tonasket Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors in support of the Tonasket School Levy and School Bond.

We believe that strong schools contribute to strong communities. Good schools are an important draw to people looking to move into our area. Often, the first question potential residents and entrepreneurs ask is about the school system. We have a vibrant and strong school district with beautiful facilities. We can proudly answer that our community supports our schools.

What has not been a focus in the conversation about this bond and levy is that our vibrant and strong district will be in jeopardy if these measures do not pass. Without these necessary funds, cuts will have to be made to meet the state mandated longer day and also, some of the state equalization funding will not be available.

Please consider the impact this can have on not just the school district and the children, but the community and businesses. The circle of community, business, and school is currently strong and we ask that you vote yes to keep it strong.

Respectfully,

Julie Alley, President

Tonasket Chamber of Commerce
