We are writing to express our support for the June 3 Farmington High School building referendum. We moved to Farmington 13 years ago, primarily for the low taxes. Although we do not have children in the school system, we understand the value of a good school system is shared by everyone — children, families and community members, the K-12 students, homeowners who enjoy solid home values because Farmington is a desirable place to live, business owners who will have a stable base of customers.
As fiscal conservatives, we believe in financially prudent town planning and management. Farmington High School costs too much to maintain. Instead of trying to patch a failing building, let’s use that money wisely. With the retirement of existing town debt and interest rates at a historic low, the average taxpayer will pay an estimated $466 over five years for a new high school. That’s $93 a year. Vote YES on June 3.
