Dr. Ann Lynn Mcllroy, Roswell Independent School District superintendent, spoke to the Roswell Sertoma Club about the upcoming election concerning the general obligation bond issue and the SB-9 mill levy, which would provide continued funding to the school district.
These periodic elections provide for renovating and furnishing school facilities, as well as meeting other needs. The state will add funds for the local district to the GO bonds if locals support the effort. The SB-9 mill levy will be a renewal of the current one, no tax increase.
This is the first time a “mail-in” ballot will be used for the election. All registered voters should receive a ballot in the mail and must return signed and completed ballots postmarked no later than Feb. 5.
The Roswell Sertoma Club encourages a student’s further education by providing 25 $500 college scholarships each semester. To support these activities, the club conducts a Bingo operation on Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. at 303 N. Virginia Ave.
Anyone wishing to join the club is welcome to attend one of its Friday meetings at noon at the Elks Lodge. Forms to apply for assistance can be found on the club’s website, roswellsertoma.org.
