To the editor,
The Hastings community understands that strong schools are the cornerstone of a strong community. An operating levy is necessary to help make this statement a truth. Without it, our students and schools suffer the negative consequences of limited funding.
On Tuesday, Nov. 5, voters are encouraged to vote Yes for the renewal of this operating levy. By voting Yes, citizens of Hastings will be saying yes to reinvesting in our schools, yes to maintaining quality programming, yes to supporting students and yes to a district that lives within our means.
Our supportive community has reinvested in our facilities and we ask you to reinvest in our academics as well. Remember, a Yes vote will continue an existing operating levy that is already in place. Please make a responsible decision to vote Yes on Nov. 5.
