It’s really nice to be able to write a blog today about something other than the Corona Virus Pandemic. The pandemic has dominated our lives and much of our thoughts for more than a month and it has changed the way we live in a way that none of us could have imagined as late as mid March. But today I’d like to send out congratulations to the parents, grand parents and kids in the Delphos city school district who campaigned successfully for a one-half of one percent income tax for school support that was approved in yesterday’s election. They took part in a well-organized campaign putting up yard signs, making phone calls and going door to door as part of an effort the likes of which I don’t think we’ve ever seen before in our community. And since the primary was originally scheduled to happen in March, much of their work was done in cold snowy and icy conditions this winter. Whether or not you supported the tax issue you have to give credit to the campaigners of all ages and the volunteers who put the successful effort together. Getting a new tax passed on it’s first try is always very difficult and the school issue was approved despite all of the uncertainty that surrounds us these days. The campaigners obviously bought in to the need for the district income tax and they proved it with the work they did. Work that paid off yesterday. That’s the way I see it.
