A new roof and furnace may be doable, but the need to completely rewire and reconfigure the building for modern technology is probably too expensive to do for the existing building. On the other hand, Mr. Frasca makes a solid case for the economic difficulty of the project. We'll have to choose between tightening belts to intolerable levels, or giving our kids an inadquate education to function in the modern world. The opportunity of having the funds matched for a limited time makes it that much more challenging a decision.

I'd vote for you, but I've been out of your jurisdiction for about 30 years. However, I certainly remember your dedication to improving the educational opportunities of Mahoning County students, especially with the then-nascent countywide computer system. Austintown couldn't have a more committed Board member. Good luck!
