Ann Arbor voters passed the 2013 Sinking Fund Millage on Nov. 5. The millage passed with 83 percent support –13,321 yes and 3,259 no.
“It is with deep gratitude that I thank the stakeholders of the Ann Arbor Public School district. Once again the voters have shown their support by investing in our students,” said AAPS Superintendent Dr. Jeanice Swift.
“I want to thank our parents and the voters who went to the polls today to vote to invest in our children and the Ann Arbor Public Schools. I also want to sincerely thank the Citizen’s Millage Committee – a dedicated group of parents and community leaders – who rallied in support of the Sinking Fund. They have my gratitude for their commitment to this district.
“AAPS will continue to be good stewards of the tax dollars to ensure all of our students continue to receive an exceptional education.”
