Lawmakers urge Capitol city residents to vote on school bond measure

Senators and Representatives In Hinds County are urging people to get out and vote on August 15 as the school bond measure comes back up for discussion.

They released this statement:

“As legislators representing the Hinds County School District, we will always stand up to support our public schools,” said Representative Jarvis Dortch and Senator David Blount in a joint statement. “We work so the state of Mississippi does right by our schools.  Our children depend on local support too.  We support the school bond measure that voters will voice their opinion about on August 15, and we encourage residents to vote YES. The school bond plan will NOT raise taxes and will continue the progress we have made across the district since the last bond issue was passed in 2003. We urge people to vote YES at the polls on Tuesday, August 15.”
