Renew the Lake Oswego school levy

Category: General
Posted by: admin

I’m writing on behalf of the Northwest Oregon Labor Council, AFL-CIO that represents more than 85 affiliated unions, including, but not limited to, the Oregon School Employees Association, Oregon Nurses Association and teachers who live and work in your community.

We support this levy because renewing the school levy provides vital funding to allow Lake Oswego schools to continue the stellar reputation they have built over the years.

It’s important to note that this is a renewal of an existing levy, not an increase, and does not increase your tax rate.

The voters of this community have a history of supporting education and this is a chance to continue that support by voting to renew the school levy.

In the wake of unstable funding from the state in recent years and the fact that costs have continued to rise, a yes vote to renew this levy will continue the tradition of great schools and great communities in Lake Oswego.
