12/12/2007: "Thank Your For Your Vote"
Dear Friday Harbor Voters,
The final tally of votes of the November 6th election once again demonstrates the commitment San Juan County has in supporting its public schools. The Committee for San Juan School District Levies & Bonds wishes to thank each and every voter who cast their vote in support of EJHR 4204 – approving the simple majority for public education levies.
Schools across the state are dependent upon local levy support for basic operations, capital maintenance projects and technology. State funding only pays for about 80% of basic education costs. .As Disraeli said,” Upon the education of the people of this country the fate of this country depends.” The future of Friday Harbor, and our country, will continue to be in our educated youth.
Thank you all for the support.
