I’m writing to express my support for the Rye City School District Bond vote on June 11. 

We moved to New York in 2013, choosing Rye over other communities because of the excellence and high ranking of the school district.  My two children have since graduated from RHS and moved on to college.  For me, voting to pass the bond is an investment in my property values and the future students of Rye City Schools. 

Classrooms designed for wood shop in the 1950’s and 60-year-old heating systems need to be replaced.  Secure entrances at all schools are an investment our kids deserve.  Crumbling walls and ceilings only get worse with time and more expensive to repair. 

Our neighbors in Port Chester, Mamaroneck, Scarsdale, and New Rochelle have all passed school bonds in the last 3 years.  Let’s join them in supporting our kids, their education, and our property values.  On June 11, I’ll be voting YES on propositions 1, 2, & 3.
