Letter: Support for bonds and Rupert

My wife, Denise, and I (and our girls ages 6 and 8) are writing to ask all voters in the Roaring Fork School District to vote yes on 3B. This bond will allow schools in our valley to make necessary and overdue improvements, including enhancing our aging school buildings and making them safer for our children, making preschool improvements and building a new school to ease overcrowding and expected growth in Carbondale and Glenwood Springs.

Another benefit of voting yes on 3B is that it will help subsidize affordable housing for district employees; we all know it has been a struggle for teachers (among other workers) to find affordable housing in our valley, and this way we can help them secure their future here, and have less turnover in our schools.

We are also supporting Jen Rupert for RFSD School Board, District A. Our schools and communities will be enhanced with Jen on the board. We had the pleasure of being with Jen last weekend at the ACES “Harvest Fest” at Rock Bottom Ranch, and it’s very comforting to know that a person with such true passion for our schools, our children and our entire community wants to be our voice on the school board. It’s a no-brainer — please mail in your ballots, and please vote for Jen Rupert and vote yes on 3B.
