Support school income tax renewal

Please remember to vote Yes for the upcoming Swanton Local School District renewal levy. Voting is May 7, 2019. This levy is NOT a new tax. It was originally approved in 2004 at 1.25% and again in 2008 when it was lowered to 0.75%. It has been renewed regularly since that time.

This levy is a crucial part of the Swanton Schools’ finances and makes up 13% of the whole district’s revenue, which in part supports a quality education for over 1,200 students!

I have lived in Swanton for my entire life, over 35 years. I graduated from Swanton High School in 2002 and went on to graduate from Defiance College in 2006. While in Swanton High School, I enjoyed playing football, wrestling, and running track.

My experiences at Swanton Schools helped shape me into the dedicated, respectful, and driven individual I am today. Swanton is, and always has been, a great place to live! We are a tight-knit community that thrives on the successful education system and competitive sports teams.

I am very excited to raise my four children in Swanton and look forward to them graduating from Swanton High School someday! Please continue to support the Swanton Local School District and vote Yes on the upcoming renewal levy!

Thank you!
