City of University Heights officials support Issue 6

To The Editor:

Education is one of the greatest gifts we can offer our children to ensure a vibrant future. In our country, public education is the backbone of that promise to future generations.

We understand and appreciate how economically challenging these times are for our residents. But we also understand that our public schools are a critical asset to our community: its health, stability, and future.

Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District leaders have taken the following steps: over $6 million has already been cut from the budget; staff voted to eliminate their cost of living increases; and the last levy was prudently stretched to last for four years. This is the lowest millage that has been requested in the last two decades. The cost is about $17 per month for a $100,000 home—less than 60 cents a day. 

At the same time, the innovative programs for which CH-UH is a nationally recognized leader will continue, and our children will be prepared to contribute and lead in the global economy. 

We support our schools and endorse the 6.9 mill levy. A vote for Issue 6 is a vote for our children. We urge the citizens of University Heights to vote YES for Issue 6. 

Susan Infeld, Mayor of University Heights
Frankie Goldberg, Vice Mayor
Steve Bullock, Councilman
Frank Consolo, Councilman
Susan Pardee, Councilwoman
Steven Sims, Councilman
