As a Claremore graduate and parent of two students who attended Claremore schools I wish to express my support of the upcoming bond vote on March 5. The best thing we can do for our students and their futures is to invest in our school system.

There are many needed repairs and renovations to be addressed which is an entirely appropriate use of funds.

I am also impressed that decisions on money spent for new projects will be the result of community input and teacher surveys. It’s exciting to know that even I might have a voice in these decisions and I feel our teachers know best what the needs really are. Safety is also a key component of this bond issue and I know it’s got to be a high priority in this day and time. The upgrades to technology in the classrooms and the transportation systems are very important and also have my full support.

Please get out and cast your vote in support with me.
