Mount Angel mayor endorses school bond

Dear Mount Angel Citizens:

As your Mayor, I would like to share my thoughts on the upcoming bond election for the Mt. Angel School District. I have reviewed the projects that would be funded by the proceeds of the bond sale. They are very necessary improvements that will greatly improve the safety, security and school environments for our students. Passing this measure will allow our community to receive $4 million in additional matching funds from the State of Oregon to add to the overall value of the projects.  

In addition to my city duties, I have been a member of the School District Budget Committee for several years. The District’s budgets are very tight and we work hard each year developing the budget to spend your tax dollars wisely and provide the best possible educational experience for our children. There are no additional dollars available to make the necessary improvements this bond sale will accomplish.

I’m proud of our community and all the things we are able to accomplish with our rich history of working together and volunteering to make Mount Angel as great as it can be. I know from my contacts with city leaders and elected officials throughout the state that the most successful communities have good public services and great schools. I think all us can contribute to our community in that spirit by supporting and voting yes for this bond measure.

Thank you all in advance for supporting our community, schools and this bond measure. 

Pete Wall, Mayor
