Dear MPLSD Staff, Students, Parents and Guardians, and Community Members,
As you by now know, our district's renewal request regarding the earned income tax levy was not successful in yesterday's election. Though I am disappointed by this result, I have hope, and we will continue our efforts when the time is right.
I have hope because the final vote tally was 360 votes against, with 333 votes in favor, which is a difference of only 3.9%. That is a difference of only 27 votes. As Mr. Todd Mustain, our treasurer/CFO, pointed out to me, if fourteen of those voters vote the opposite way, we have a different outcome.
