LETTER TO THE EDITOR: League of Women Voters supports Prop 1

Tuesday, October 30, 2012 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

The League of Women Voters encourages voters to support the Proposition 1 initiative for children, Putting Kids First.

In view of the decline in mental health services in our community, we support Proposition 1 for children’s vital services in mental health, crisis intervention, and child abuse. The unmet needs in Boone County have clearly been documented for us.

This proposition provides a 1/4-cent county sales tax to establish a Children’s Services Fund, governed by an independent board of appointed Boone County citizens.

The League has well established positions on prevention of risk to children and on affordable, quality health and mental health care for all.

Vote Yes on Proposition 1.

Marilyn McLeod and Carol Schreiber are co-presidents of the League of Women Voters of Columbia-Boone County.
