The time is now to support the South Portland High School.
I do not want the value of our house to decrease because we have not maintained our schools. I would rather pay a tax increase than see a 5 percent to 10 percent devaluation in our property values – a much larger amount of money than the actual tax increase.
People move to communities because they are strong and vibrant. Strong schools build these strong communities.
Whether you have children or not, we all want to feel proud of where we live. Look at our wonderful elementary schools. They are now full because families chose to move to these strong neighborhood communities. I love seeing all these children walking to school each day. People will continue to move here when they see that South Portland citizens care about the high school as well.
We build this community one family at a time. Have pride in our great city. Vote yes on the high school bond question on Nov. 2.
