For most people, our home is our greatest investment. The recession has reduced our net worth, our homes have lost much of their value, our retirement accounts are valued at half of what they were and our savings accounts are offering less than a half of a percent in annual interest. Studies indicate that a strongly performing public school system is a top decider when people are looking to relocate. The Queen Creek Unified School District is the highest rated school district in Maricopa County and ranked fourth in the state. The best way to protect your assets is to strengthen the value of your home and those around you. Whether you have school age children in your home, and whether your children attend QCUSD schools, a charter school, or even if they are home schooled, it is imperative that you vote to protect the property values of all of our homes by ensuring that the QCUSD has the funding they need to continue to be an “A” Rated district. Please vote “YES” on Nov. 5th.
