We are grateful to all of you in our community for supporting our non-homestead millage renewal! The unofficial election results from the county clerk shows it passed. Thank you so much! Also, we are pleased to announce that Kendra Durga (six-year term) and Chad Hathcock (two-year term) have been re-elected to our Board of Education. And, we enthusiastically welcome Carrie Whitaker, who won the open six-year term and will formally join the Board in January. Thank you to all candidates who stepped up to run. We appreciate your commitment to #HornetNation, and we look forward to working with you in different ways in the months, and years ahead.
As you head to the polls today, please remember to flip your ballot over for school board races and the renewal of our non-homestead millage. The millage renewal is not a new tax, and does not affect your primary residence. It represents about 27% of our annual operating budget.
In the Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln expressed the ideal of "government of the people, by the people, and for the people." Tomorrow is election day, and we hope all of our age of majority students are not only registered but do go and actually vote if they have not already done so. For those heading to the polls tomorrow, the ballot contains both partisan and nonpartisan candidate races (like school boards), local issues such as city council races and school millage requests, and statewide proposals. Be sure to flip your ballot over so that you have an opportunity to vote on all matters. Your teachers have not taught you who to vote for, or how to think about certain issues or candidates. Along with your family, they have taught you that responsible citizenship requires active participation in your community. Thank you in advance for voting in your first election!
Hornets: Don't forget to "fall back" this weekend!
