First off, let me say I do not live in Arcadia, in fact, I live in Minnesota, am speaking out as a grandmother that has grandchildren attending the Arcadia School District. I have seen first hand the condition of the elementary school while attending functions for my grandchildren and YES it needs to be replaced.
I feel for the homeowners with this decision in a raise in their property taxes.
With Ashley Furniture Iím sure the biggest employer in Arcadia, I have to wonder how many of their employees are homeowners, but have children attending Arcadia School District. Not knowing, but Iím guessing the biggest share arenít homeowners. It would be very generous of Ashley Furniture to help with this matter. Ashley Furniture has done so much for Arcadia, with the parks and special events going on in the community over the years.
These are just my thoughts, but I am hoping the referendum passes, for the safety of the children and continuing good education my grandchildren are receiving in the Arcadia School District.
