Your Opinion: New high school proposal favored

March 27th, 2013 by Ed Clausen, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

I support the proposal to build a new Jefferson City high school. There is merit to all of the ideas about which direction public education will go; build a new high school off Missouri 179, build two new high schools, remodel the existing JCHS and build another new high school, or do nothing.

Most agree that we must do something. Ultimately, I will vote yes because current and past members of our school board have spent countless hours of their personal time (school board members are not paid) looking at all options and concluded that this is the best option for our children and community.

I am blessed to know some of those people and value their judgment. They are not motivated by self-interest. We elected them to oversee and lead our outstanding school district. I defer to their informed judgment.

Please vote yes on questions one and two.
