Thank you for supporting Issue 4
Cleveland is enjoying a development and cultural boom, and voters showed they understand how important education is to continuing that momentum. Issue 4 passed with 63 percent of the vote, ensuring continued investment and long-term support for this most crucial element of success.
Thank you, Cleveland voters, for acting. Thank you for understanding. Thank you for the commitment of your hard-earned dollars. The passage of Issue 4 will provide the funds to rebuild 20-22 run-down, obsolete schools and refurbish more than 20 more. It will assure a continued 68 percent match from the State of Ohio -- the state will contribute $2 for every local dollar spent on construction.
United Way doesn’t typically support ballot-issue campaigns, but our goal is to ensure every child graduates from high school. When we say all kids need to graduate from school, all means all.
