School Levies produced winners and losers across Montana

Fortunately, Whitefish passed the school levy and Columbia Falls passed 2 out of 3 school levies, including the high school levy to repair the roof.  But elsewhere in the state, school levies did not do so well leaving public schools struggling to meet their budgets.

Amanda Curtis, President of the Montana Federation of Public Employees (MFPE), placed the blame on the Legislature when she said:

“Every Montana kid has a constitutional right to a quality public education, and last night’s levies divided our kids into winners and losers,” Curtis said of the election results in large and small districts throughout the state. “This is the direct result of the 2023 Legislature’s one-two punch of failing to fund schools at the inflationary rate and then pricing Montanans out by shifting property taxes from corporations to homeowners.”

Doors for Debo!

Powers for the People Door Knocking Team

Every weekend since early March, the Door Knocking Team has been busy asking voters in House District 3 to vote for Debo in the Democratic Primary!

Vote for the School Levies!

Debo Powers, Public School Champion

School Levy Ballots arrived in mailboxes this week.  This is an important issue.  Debo attended a meeting at Columbia Falls High School about the School Levy which included a tour to see the roof that needs fixing.  If this levy does not pass, our students will suffer.  Please vote YES on this ballot.  If Debo is elected to the Montana Legislature, she will work to change the school funding formula to ensure quality public education that does not have to rely so heavily on local levies.  See her mailer on Public Education:
