Measure I stands for investment

By
From page A10 | March 01, 2013 |

I’m proud to live in a city that has consistently stood up for investing in our future, from significant contributions to the Davis Schools Foundation to overwhelming support for school parcel taxes, from private/public funding construction of the high school track and stadium to money-saving solar panels at our schools.

We are asked once again to invest in our future by supporting Measure I. If you have waited this long to submit your ballot, you are probably on the fence. The rate structure seems confusing but the Water Advisory Committee made up of people you trust, such as Helen Thomson, approve of it.

You hate spending maybe $100 a month on bottled water and salt pellets but you hate to vote for higher water rates to replace that spending. You know generations to come can’t rely on groundwater alone but is now the time to build a water system?

So take a step back and look at it this way: The people who always oppose investing in our future have written to brag about their “leadership” of opposition and lawsuits they have brought to overturn school spending. Instead of being proud to invest, they are proud to always say no.

We are better then that. Don’t follow the “just say no” crowd. Be proud to invest in our future; vote yes on Measure I.
