Letter to the Editor: Bond is investment in future leaders

I have no children, so why am I supporting the school bond? Simple: Self-interest.

These kids are the leaders of tomorrow. I need them to be as well-educated and well-informed as possible so that my own future is secure. That won’t happen if they are distracted from learning by shabby, crowded school buildings and uncomfortable facilities. They’ll be the ones to take care of me in my old age, so I want them to have the best. They deserve it, and so do we all!
