Community Meeting on Referendum 09 this Tuesday

If you've got questions about the Referendum, you're not sure what to think, or you're leaning toward a "no" vote, I hope you'll come to the Community presentation on Tuesday night at George Washington Middle School. Superintendent Dr. Fishbein and Board members will be on hand to present details on the projects to be included in the Referendum and to answer all your questions.

I feel like parents have been receiving quite a lot of details on the referendum (via HSAs and eNews mailings, etc.), but if you're a taxpayer who doesn't have kids in the schools, this is a good chance to find out everything you need to know in order to make a decision. Don't rely on assumptions or rumors. Get the facts...it's a detailed question with important implications for our district and our Village. After this meeting, whether you vote "yes" or "no," at least you'll know you made an educated choice.

Tuesday night's meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the GW Auditorium. If you can't make it Tuesday, a repeat meeting will be held on Monday, November 30 at GW.
