I support a place to play and I hope you will show your support to the students of Ridgway as well by voting yes on ballot issue 3B. There is no question as to whether or not our students need a gym and music room and due to the following reasons there is no question as to when is the right time to do it.

The school received a grant from the state of $400,000 that is only available if the voters approve the ballot issue. With the approval, the school district will be able to pay off the 1995 bond early and end up saving taxpayers $100,000 and you will even notice a slight decrease in your property taxes. If each household is willing to expend an extra $2.95 per month, then we can complete our school.

The need for the gym and music room is not going to go away so let’s move forward and vote yes on ballot issue 3B. Now is the time.
