For their contributions to this levy election, recognition is given to the following:
1) Maintenance, grounds, and administrators for identifying the 47 projects that need repair;
2) Okanogan School Board for reviewing project needs and putting the matter before the voters, who own the buildings and pay for repairs;
3) Okanogan County Auditor’s Office for its efforts in getting ballots delivered to registered voters’ mailing addresses;
4) The district office for getting information out about identified projects, costs of those projects and estimated tax rate if the bond levy passed;
5) Local newspapers for their articles presenting levy facts; and
6) Community members who took time to learn about the levy, to ask questions, and to vote.
We are fortunate to live in a country where we can make decisions at the ballot box. Whether or not we agree with election results, we can maintain our determination and efforts to make this world a little better than when we entered it.
Thank you for your daily efforts!
Sincerely and respectfully,
Richard Johnson, Superintendent
Okanogan School District
