In response to "No on G: Bad time to increase property taxes" (Oct. 17, Letters): Many families in the Hart-Ransom community place a very high value on maintaining the excellent school in our district. We acknowledge the need for modern facilities to continue this tradition.
While excellence comes at a price, the annual average single-family tax increase, according to the Stanislaus County Assessor's Office, would be about $53.51. We feel this investment in our children and our community is very worthwhile. We hope voters will do their homework and get the facts.
