High quality schools are a huge driver of where people want to live, more so than ever today. And it’s a proven fact that there is a direct correlation between the quality of local schools and maintaining our home values.
The Gig Harbor and Key Peninsula region have not passed a Peninsula School District bond in 15 years, and as a result, our schools are unsafe and overcrowded. Most of our schools are more than 30 years old and need critical updates.
A yes vote for the replacement school bond will start to put us back on the track we should have been on, investing in and rebuilding our schools.
Mail in your ballot before April 24, and join me in voting yes, to help make this great place to live even better for everyone.
