& Human Services
Our community will suffer greatly if programs to support mental health, childhood development, and care for the elderly continue to diminish.
While it can be difficult to trace exact results when it comes to preventing negative outcomes, it is nonetheless imperative that our social service providers have full support philosophically and financially.
I would support a Mill Levy and SPET funding to ensure recurring revenue utilized to sustain and improve our mental health and human service programs. A full mill generates around $1.7 million in revenue. This essential funding would offer relief to local organizations who have seen their budgets and services slashed because of declining state funding.
