Jill Duson supports a sensible solution to renovating Portland’s elementary schools. The $64 million price tag for renovating all four schools need not fall exclusively on our taxpayers. The state has a co-responsibility.

Jill’s approach – local funding for two schools – is responsible governance. If state government is lax in providing its fair share, an additional bond can be passed as needed.

Vote to re-elect Jill Duson to the at-large seat on the Portland City Council, and vote “yes” on Question 4 on the city ballot.
