keep akron from sucking more than it already does

Go out to vote on Tuesday, May 2. Particularly, vote YES for Issue One.

This is a a 7.9-mill operating issue for Akron Public Schools. Operating levy. This keeps the schools running; this is different from levies to build new schools.

If it does not pass, the following areas will receive massive cuts: Personnel from all areas; High school visual and performing arts; Sports; Library program;Math, English, science and social studies electives at high school; Elementary art and music;
Technology/computer; Extracurricular activities and more.

The impact on Akron residents is $181 a year for someone who owns a $100,000 house. It sounds hokey to say, but voting for this is an investment in the future.
