Episode 109: WTF Is On The Ballot – District 11 Schools

IMG_8743This month we kick off the 2017 election cycle with our semi-annual WTF Is On The Ballot episodes. First up; the mill levy override that will benefit District 11 schools. In this episode we sit down with Lauren Hug and Anthony Carlson from Friends of D11 to discuss why funding for the city’s largest school district is vital for not only the district but our community as a whole.

We also talk about how a campaign functions during an election cycle, what the additional funds would be used for and dive into how a mill levy actually works.

You can view the anticipated ballot for the election here, which includes language for the D11 mill levy issue.

And please follow the Twitter accounts of Lauren and Friends of D11 to stay current on get out the vote efforts and events. Enjoy the show!
