On Tuesday, October 19th, the Hardin County Chamber and Business Alliance endorsed the Vote Yes KCS Campaign efforts to pass a $35M bond issue on the November 2nd ballot. With the state of Ohio co-funding the effort with approximately $30M, the new facility will incorporate many important features to benefit graduating students with the tools to succeed in the workforce.
In the release, the Board of Directors of the HCCBA stated, “Our job as a board is to promote and enhance infrastructure in our county. The board recognizes that one of the most important attractions to a business relocating is the school system. We, as a board, have the duty and obligation to support these levies when they are in the best interest of enhancing the infrastructure of our community to promote economic development.”
The Vote Yes KCS Campaign is excited to have the support of the HCCBA and appreciate the significance of the endorsement. We thank the HCCBA for their endorsement and support of the effort to build a new middle/high school for the students of the Kenton City School District.
In closing, the HCCBA Board provided the following statement, “The Alliance Board of Directors strongly encourages voters to support the Kenton City School District Bond Levy for a new Middle/High School. The future of our community is being educated now.”
