March is here and we don't want you to miss a thing! 
So this is what's going on This Week In North Baldwin...
______________________________________________
 
It's Super Tuesday in the Presidential Primaries and today is the day that Alabama Votes!
The polls are open, so be sure to get out and vote today! The North Baldwin Chamber encourages all citizens to exercise their right to vote!

Today in Baldwin County Alabama you will be voting on more than just Presidential hopefuls, you will be voting on State Amendment 1 as well as the renewal of Local School Taxes in Baldwin County, along with a US Senate Seat and a US Representative Seat. 

If you would like to review your ballot before you head to the polls, they are provided for you here:

TODAY, 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 3-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
