To the editor:

As Election Day draws near, we have an opportunity to make a new Scotts Valley Middle School happen for our kids. We would never forgive ourselves if something happened to the kids of this community that we could have avoided. Truly, our dilapidated middle school campus is a danger that we as a community must fix. Scotts Valley schools are in the bottom 10 percent for state funding levels, and our school district rightly opts to put it's meager resources into our classrooms. As a homeowner, I value our schools for keeping my property vales up, but as a parent I value our schools for their investment into my kids. I am willing to invest of my own resources to make this new school happen, and I hope that all Scotts Valley voters will join me. I urge a YES vote on Measure A. Our com munity will be better for it!
