Linn-Mar bond is a responsible investment

The Marion Economic Development Corp. and its board of directors believes our K-12 education system is a competitive advantage for both our residents and business community. Strategic capital investments in school facilities are essential to being the best place in Iowa to raise a family and grow a business.

On Tuesday, Sept. 11, Linn-Mar voters will be asked to support a well-planned bond issue that will provide for urgent space needs of all students in the Linn-Mar district. The MEDCO board of directors applauds the work of the Linn-Mar School Board to present a plan that addresses the district’s highest priority needs in the most financially responsible way. The district’s 10-year capital plan is a strategic and responsible way to provide for the basic needs of one of the fastest growing communities in the state of Iowa. Successful passage of the bond issue is paramount to providing adequate classroom space for all students in the K-12 system. The MEDCO Board encourages all business owners and district voters to learn more about the plan by going to www.linnmar.k12.ia.us/vote.

To continue providing the best education possible to our future workforce, we must ensure we have adequate space in our classrooms. The MEDCO board of directors supports the Linn-Mar bond issue and encourages our community and business partners to Vote Yes on Sept. 11.

MEDCO President
