Doing The Right Thing

I’ve had a lot of people ask me how I think the election will go on June 25th.

My response: I think it’s going to be close, and it could go either way.

We need every vote we can get for the levy to pass. Every registered voter in Morgan County needs to make it a priority to cast a ballot. Take your spouse, your adult children, your neighbor…anyone you know…take them with you to vote on Tuesday.

I got more than I bargained for when I agreed to publicly and actively support the levy. It’s been intense and time-consuming. Politics isn’t really my thing. But I could not silently stand by with the attacks being launched at our administrators, school board and teachers…not when I had researched the issues and learned the truth. Fortunately, I became acquainted with other concerned parents and citizens who felt the same way. We joined together and named our organization For Morgan Kids.

We created a mission statement and it’s remained solid throughout this campaign. We have not changed our position on the issues surrounding the levy. We are not a political group that has re-organized ourselves under a different name. We have no personal agendas.   

We believe it is our stewardship to support Morgan County School District administrators and teachers in the education of our children. That support comes in many forms, including a means to provide sustainable and meaningful funding for our schools. The best proposed solution to meet the immediate funding needs of Morgan County School District is the voted local levy. We trust our school board will allocate the funds in a responsible manner that is both in compliance with the law and in the best interests of our children.

It’s not about winning an election, it’s about doing the right thing.

We invite you to join with us on June 25th in voting for the levy. Polling locations are at Morgan County Courthouse and Mountain Green Elementary School, beginning at 7 a.m. until 8 p.m.
