Vote to support the county's future

| February 23, 2023 1:00 AM

I have lived in Boundary County my entire life, and I was blessed with a quality education and the opportunity to compete in a Badger uniform. I have taught for 24 years, I’m a coach and a parent to three children.

Providing equal opportunities for athletes is a top priority for me, and I would only file a Title IX complaint if there were legitimate issues AND if I was genuinely concerned about the opportunities for female athletes. I have serious concerns with Mark Rossmiller’s complaint and recent letter to the editor. If he truly cares about female athletes, then trying to sabotage the levy with inaccurate information is doing the exact opposite.

First, he doesn’t even live in our county. Secondly, his information about the levy is inaccurate. Thirdly, we offer several opportunities to female athletes, but we can’t force them to participate just to increase numbers. Finally, if you actually ask the girls, they don’t want to play the last game of the evening when the boys are also playing. I question, has he ever even attended an event in Boundary County? 

On March 14, our kids need this community to vote in support of the M&O levy. ALL of them — athletics, music, robotics, electives … This is NOT the major surgery desperately needed to rebuild our failing buildings, but it’s the Band-Aid needed so our kids can continue doing the activities they love.

Please get informed and vote to support the future of Boundary County.
