If you live in Hebron, you've likely heard talk of the upcoming referendum. I urge you to vote yes for the referendum on Tuesday.
Passing a referendum means an increase in property taxes, but if you live in the average assessed home, that increase is only $12 a month. That's less than an average family spends on a trip to a fast food restaurant.
What does this small tax increase mean? It means Hebron schools keep their quality education. It means they don't have to cut teachers and class sizes won't increase.
What if your children are grown? Or if you don't have any? The children whose educational lives are affected by the referendum will be the ones you see in a doctor's office in 20 years. Do you want them to have the best education possible? I do.
Vote yes on Tuesday.
