Dear Fellow Hudsonites, It was in 1976 that I, newly elected School Board president, first learned of this PIF operating levy with its clear provisions for controlled cost to taxpayers and its definition of situations where its incomes could be used to offset unusual expenses.
The "no-new-tax" limit in the amount to be raised by the levy renewals, plus the clear definition of where the funds can be expended have worked very well in the ensuing 40+ years. These factors give me fully adequate reasons to again endorse its eighth renewal. Schools are like our homes: they incur heavy maintenance and critical upgrade costs from time to time. Yet this ingeniously designed PIF levy eases the pain for our Maintenance Dept. in keeping our huge and efficient plant going full blast and at peak capability. Hudson enjoys a very good record but very essential too. Please join me in full support of this relatively painless but vital part of our Hudson tax system.
Paul H. Bodden,
