Strong economic development efforts begin with investments and reinvestments in our community.
While the city and county are making tremendous efforts in housing, workforce development, child care, and other similar initiatives, all of this can fail without an investment in our schools.
It’s important to recognize that with this link opportunity, it’s more about space than condition. We are running out of space in our schools. How do we attract new businesses and families if we cannot find a place for their children in our schools?
Our children learn differently today, teachers teach differently today, but our schools are not conducive to this teaching/learning environment. Investing in our schools by successfully completing the current school attendance effort ensures that our schools remain attractive, current and with space for everyone, making it easier to attract and retain excellent teachers as well as businesses and families.
Our peer schools have done it and now it’s our turn. I support upvotes on both issues on May 10, ensuring that our community is ready for our future – ready to grow and thrive.
Successful schools are the foundation of successful communities.
Help Hays remain a great place to live, work, grow and learn! Vote yes on May 10.
