Letter: Retired teachers urge voters to support schools


On behalf of Oak Harbor retired teachers, we encourage Oak Harbor voters to vote “yes” on the upcoming school bond on Feb. 14. With the matching state and federal dollars, this bond measure will be able to replace three aging schools, provide critical safety enhancements for all schools and address important needs of the Oak Harbor Community. The cost of this bond is expected to be 30 cents less per $1,000 than the high school bond that was paid off in December and this is for three schools!

As a community, we need to value our schools and show how much we care about the future of Oak Harbor by investing in.
