    Please vote yes. I am a graduate of the Rutland High School class of 2010. While I was in high school, I was fortunate enough to serve as the student representative to the School Board. During this time I witnessed firsthand the diligent work that the School Board does to present the city with a fair budget to both the city taxpayers and the children.

    I am proud of the fact that I am from Rutland and am so thankful for the opportunities that the city provided me. During my time in the Rutland City Public Schools, I received the foundation of my education. The skills and knowledge I learned allowed me to be successful after graduation. I have just completed a degree in health sciences from Northeastern University in Boston. I will continue to conduct research in Boston post-graduation and then pursue a career in medicine. This dream and the ability to achieve these dreams all started in the Rutland City Public Schools.

    I encourage all Rutland City voters to vote yes for the budget to provide the current generation of Rutland City children with the same opportunities that you gave to me.
