Show Support for Proposal 1 With a Board Resolution or Letter to the Editor
On May 5, 2015, Michigan voters will be asked to approve a 1-cent sales tax increase to help fund schools and much needed repairs to Michigan’s roads. MASB supports the ballot proposal and urges all school boards to do the same.
To that end MASB has developed a resolution your board can adopt to show support for the proposal. We also encourage you to write a letter to the editor for your local papers. Please feel free to contact us if you need assistance with drafting one. We have also put together information that you can use with your districts and communities to educate them about the proposal. Keep in mind, no public resources may be expended to urge a "yes” vote, only to inform.
