The election excitement in my college town has reached epic proportions. Cynicism notwithstanding, I voted late last week. The only thing I'll reveal is that I voted FOR the Bethel-Tate schools operating levy. For the maybe two Bethel-area people who read this - please, please vote yes tomorrow ... actually today. Bethel's been rated "excellent" for several years now and spends less per student than most schools in our region. If the levy doesn't pass, the school will almost certainly have to cut all extracurriculars and possibly even bus service. I'm really concerned about the latter - attendance could drop so significantly that we'll lose our rating. It's a shitty time to ask for more money, but your local schools are worth it.
Enough stumping. For everyone else, please vote. If nothing else, you get a sticker. If you want to go the extra mile, help each other vote: carpool, watch somebody's kids while they go to the polls. And for the love of Cheez its, take your ID!
