Our students rely on voters for support now

I am an alumnus of Red Rock Central, a parent of three students at RRC and a farmer in the RRC school district.
I am writing to ask voters to approve the bonding bill to build a new school for our students.
It's important to all of us that our kids and grandkids get the best education possible. And it is also important to all of us that we educate the next generation of farmers, health care workers, small business owners and entrepreneurs that will keep our communities growing and strong into the future.
A new school would do so much more than just help our students. It would give young families an additional reason to consider moving to our community.
It would give our future leaders another reason to be proud of their community. It would show our kids how much we truly value them and that they live in a community that wants them to succeed.
It's an investment that would truly benefit all who live and work in our school district.
I am a farmer and understand I would pay a little more in taxes. I'm happy to do that. No person is an island, nor is any farm truly independent. We all rely on each other, and our students are relying on voters to support them now.
