I am a Rutland City property tax payer (although I do not live in the city), and I am a huge fan of the Rutland City Public Schools. Rutlandís school leadership, faculty and staff are among the most dedicated, intelligent and compassionate educators I have ever encountered. The school system has a long and storied history of educating successful students whose lives have been enhanced by very high-quality elementary and secondary education. Along with my dad, my brothers and all my kids, we feel fortunate to have benefited from education in Rutland. The generous financial support of the taxpayers over time has been critical to the success of the Rutland schools and their many talented and grateful graduates. The Rutland Renaissance is under way, in no small part due to our excellent school system. I would ask you to continue this impressive tradition by supporting the school budget on May 13.
