Vote yes on Nov. 2 for the continued growth in our schools and communities. The growth of each enhances the growth and well-being of the other. They go hand-in-hand. The Western Dubuque school district’s proposed extension of the current Sales Tax Revenue Purpose Statement will benefit both entities.

Funding for future plans will come from the 1-cent sales tax which the Iowa Legislature has extended to all schools for the next 20 years. A No vote will not change the sales tax rate nor the local property tax rate. Use of the funds are adequately detailed in the ballot issue language which includes property tax relief. Keep our Schools and Communities in the growth pathway.

Your Yes vote is the road map for growth.
