Letter: Jordan District needs money from bond issue
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Vote for the Jordan bond! Communities show what they value by where they spend their tax dollars. Jordan School District residents all benefit from increased property values, lower crime rates and economic development because of great schools ("Bonds, taxes and city consolidation are on Utahns' ballots," Tribune, Oct. 18).

Adequate facilities show children that the adults in the community want them to have a good education. As citizens, we want our children to gain the skills necessary to compete in the global market as well as the skills to be good citizens.

With 93 percent of Utah children attending neighborhood public schools, Jordan District needs the bond to build schools for the student enrollment growth that is coming. Thirty years from now, I will be the beneficiary of the leadership, entrepreneurship, and service provided by students currently in the public school system.
