Letter: Ballots have been mailed; now it’s time to cast votes


February ballots have been mailed.

Even with only two things to vote on, please don’t think it’s not important. The South Whidbey School District is asking voters to renew two levies. These levies replace expiring levies. They are not in addition to what taxpayers already pay.

All school districts in the State of Washington count on levies, and the renewal of them every two to six years.

The levies on our ballot are expected to translate to be about the same, or slightly lower, tax dollars than what you have been paying. They help pay for athletics, music and arts, lower class sizes, maintenance of facilities, food service etc.

To learn more, visit swslevy.com or the school district’s website.
