LWV endorses May ballot Issue 2
To the Editor:
The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Chapter of the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland (LWV) has voted to endorse Issue 2, the 5.9 mill operating levy for the Cleveland Heights-University Heights City School District. The district has consistently been recognized for its careful stewardship of taxpayer money.
The LWV’s positions support the role of the local community in levying local taxes to assume a reasonable share of the financial burden to support local public schools.
Passage of Issue 2 will allow our schools to keep the critical programs that are helping students achieve, and to retain the teachers and staff members who make these programs successful. At 5.9 mills, it is the smallest request in decades. Nothing can be accomplished without basic operating funds.
It is for these reasons that our chapter endorses the levy set out in Issue 2 for the support of the CH-UH City School District.
