Prop 101 – Arizona Vote Please

I got this in my e-mail today, thought I`d encourage voters to make an educated decision and VOTE! Our school programs are already being cut. Ashton is going into Jr. High next year here is Gilbert AZ and the electives are pretty limited. Things I loved and felt made school more interesting and fun (like Drama) are already cut! If they don`t get help, what is next to go? I`m not telling you which way to vote, but just TO VOTE!
   
I`m voting YES! to Prop 101 because I want my kids to have the kind of public education they deserve.
   
Here`s the e-mail: 


Dear GPS Parent,

The Governor and the Legislature have proposed a temporary sales-tax increase of one cent to go directly to schools, health and human services, and to public safety.  Many of you have asked about the impact of Prop 100 on Gilbert Public Schools.  The following links will provide you with current information on the GPS budget and the impact of Prop 100.

I encourage you to exercise your civic duty, study both sides of the issue, and then vote your conscience on May 18.  Early ballots may be requested of the Maricopa County recorder by visiting their site: https://recorder.maricopa.gov/earlyvoteballotnet/evbrequest.aspx

Thank you for your continued support of Gilbert Public Schools. 
    
Dave Allison, Ed.D.
Superintendent, Gilbert Public Schools
   
P.S. If you never get out to vote, get an early ballot here and fill it out at home and mail it in! It`s EASY! Just do it!!
