& Human Services
Our community will suffer greatly if programs that support mental health, childhood development, and care for the elderly continue to diminish.
It is imperative that our social service providers have our full support, both philosophically and financially.
Given the recent cuts in State and Federal funding, I support the collection of a one mill levy to ensure a recurring revenue source for our mental health and human service programs.
A full mill is estimated to generate $1.7 million in revenue. This funding would offer critical relief for various local organizations who help maintain our community’s health and stability.
In time, we will watch our investment in essential services pay off because fewer children, families, individuals, and couples will slip though our safety nets.
