This November keep your eye on the ballot for the Lee County School Board’s half-cent sales tax referendum. Voting yes will increase the sales tax in Lee County from 6% to 6.5% per dollar to fund school capital projects. The tax will be used for new school construction, reconstruction, campus improvements, updated technology, and will improve safety for our students.
Quality public education improves the community around you. It is a major driver of economic development, promotes higher incomes, creates better jobs, lessens crime, and increases property values. Support your local community and help the children by voting YES in November.
