To me, $37 is a lot of money. That is half of a gas tank, part of the heating bill, or maybe a couple of pizzas and sodas. This sum is also the annual tax, on a $200,000 home, to fund both upcoming mill levies for Billings Public Schools. Regardless of past leadership in BPS, and regardless of whether you have children in BPS, these levies need to be passed. Our current superintendent has the vision and skills to lead our schools, fiscally and responsibly into the 21st century. Furthermore, we all have the responsibly to educate the children of Billings, as we live within a community and depend upon each other in our community. As Marian Wright Edelman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Fund said, “Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.” Billings, let’s forego the pizza and come together to improve the lives of others, as well as our own.
