As an active senior living in O'Fallon, I encourage my fellow citizens to vote "yes" for the schools of our community on April 9.
My husband and I moved a great deal with our children while raising our family, as his job demanded it. With each and every move when purchasing our homes, we sought the town with the school district that had the best to offer our children. The athletic, music and strong academic programs played an important part in shaping our daughters' careers and helped them become who they are today.
Every child deserves this opportunity in a public school system and we are blessed with an opportunity to keep this going for the generations to come. By supporting these schools and students now, we secure a strong community for our future.
