Muskego Chamber of Commerce Supports School Referendum

The Muskego Chamber of Commerce is backing its Mission: Creating prosperity and a vibrant community that makes our lake community a destination for work, home, and play by supporting the 2011 School facilities referendum that will take place on Tues November 8th, 2011.

Investing in education leads to future community growth and the prosperity of our citizens and businesses. Muskego boasts a much respected school district. Yet, it is well known in this community that many of our elementary facilities are outdated and thus affects the perceived image of education and community. With interest rates and building costs at historic lows, it is an opportune time to invest in school facilities. The Muskego Chamber has long supported local education. Its members support the school district by providing student mentorship programs through our business leaders. The Chamber recognizes that our schools positively influence residential property values. Realtors don't sell houses-- they sell neighborhoods. Good schools and a strong community equal good neighborhoods.

The Chamber of Commerce is encouraging all to become knowledgeable about the new revised plan by attending referendum information nights, take building tours, and talking with school board representatives and members on the steering committee. Many of our business leaders participated in the steering committees that drafted the revised plan. The revised plan merges community input with the most pressing facility needs. It responds to community cost concerns while still delivering on the mission of the school district. The Muskego Chamber urges voters to support our community on November 8th.
