Now is the time for D

Measure D is a school bond issue for the communities of Los Osos, Morro Bay and San Luis Obispo. Its purpose is for facility maintenance and upgrades. Let’s look at this simply:

You love your house! It’s been good to you for 50 years, but the roof leaks, the pipes leak, the wiring is faulty and the toilet runs. Not to mention all those 1960s inefficient appliances.

You’ve taken good care of your home, but nothing lasts forever. It’s time to go out for a loan so you can upgrade, renovate and happily enjoy your next 50 years. And now’s the time to do it while the interest rates are low, and because you know that burying your head in the sand is not a solution.

Things don’t get better by ignoring them. They don’t even stay the same. They only get worse.

Measure D is not just about providing the best possible future for the children of our community. Our schools help determine the ethos of our town. If we invest in our schools, we invest in our community’s future happiness. It’s time we pay it forward! Put simply, vote “yes” on D.
