Whether you’re for or against a tax increase to support the University of New Mexico- Los Alamos, your opinion won’t count unless you vote by 7 p.m. today.
After that, it will be too late to make your opinion known regardless of how you stand on a 2-mil tax levy being proposed by UNM-LA.
UNM-LA decided to initiate the tax vote in the face of what school officials have said are the rising costs of education, coupled with sharp declines in state funding over the past five years.
Since the beginning of this year, officials have been out in the community campaigning for the levy, letting residents know about what they say is the valuable role UNM-LA plays in the community and in the education of students in the Los Alamos Public Schools.
Among the things supporters touted were UNM-LA’s dual-credit program, where Los Alamos High School students can take college courses at the school at no cost.
Officials have also noted some of the college’s new degree programs, such as fire science and robotics, may have to shut down, since they were started under grant programs, programs that are due to run out of funding soon.
