Let's get busy with our schools

To the editor:

The voters are in. The message was clear: No new school. My thanks to those who wrote clear, concise, helpful and positive letters.

I voted no, but my vote seems to have been misunderstood. Do I care about our children? Yes! Was money the main issue? No! Do I care about our historic city and its buildings? Yes! Do I think time and money have been wasted on trying to convince me to change my mind, or that I am wrong? Yes! Are we going to wait years and be worn down and drained of more funds before something is done? I hope not.

We have two buildings in a great location that have needed work for some time. If they need to be improved and updated for the health and safety of our children, let's get busy.
