On  March 1 , the election ballot will include renewal of existing school taxes, which were  voted in back in 1927 and 1950.   Voting FOR the 1-mill and 4-mill renewals on March 1st will  keep our schools at the current funding level (these are NOT new taxes)
.  
Voting against will decrease the current funding level and result in severe cuts.

A Citizens Review Has Been Completed 
Following three months of an independent review, the 24-person Community Advisory Task Force reported the Baldwin County Public School System desperately needs these school taxes to be renewed on  March 1st just to continue to fund education in the county at its current level. 

For the future of YOUR workforce!
We encourage you to vote FOR on March 1st for the: 
* RENEWAL OF SPECIAL DISTRICT THREE-MILL SCHOOL TAX 
* RENEWAL OF SPECIAL COUNTY-WIDE ONE-MILL SCHOOL TAX  

Pick up signs at ANY of the 5 Chambers of Commerce in Baldwin County Today!

Support your future workforce!

Please vote  March 1st to renew the existing school taxes and encourage your employees to vote YES!

The Public School System desperately needs these funds just to remain at the current level of funding.

Business leaders understand that an educated and well trained workforce 
is critical for everyone's future!
