To the Editor:
Farmington is a great town to live, work and raise a family.
We have an excellent school system that is highly regarded in Connecticut and beyond our borders. There is a time when a facility comes into play and has an impact on the teaching and learning in the classroom. I believe that time is NOW for Farmington High School. Without a new facility, I believe the excellent education we have come to expect and enjoy will be compromised.
There has been no better time to take on a project because of the expiration of debt service of major projects of 15-to-20 years ago, historically low interest rates and a due diligence process that has spanned many years. The bandaid approach has reached a point of diminishing returns and is no longer viable. Support signals to prospective residents the value we place on education and thereby enhances the value of our homes.
I encourage my fellow citizens to support a new high school in Farmington to ensure the excellence in education our children and future generations deserve.
Vote yes on June 3.
