Letter: The time is now for a new school in Prospect


To the editor,

Would you want to send your five year old to a school that is severely outdated, has serious mold problems, lacks a gymnasium, has no handicap access, and is needing multimillion dollar repairs over the next five years? Well, that’s exactly what the citizens of Prospect have been doing for the past 10 years.

Algonquin school has outlived its usefulness. We have a chance to give the future kids of Prospect a healthy, adequate facility that will last for the next 50 years. The time to act is now. I urge all voters in Region 16 to finally do the right thing for this town. Vote yes for the school project. It is desperately needed and long overdue.
