I read today with great concern of the budget cuts that may happen to Head Start in the area without the passage of the tax surcharge scheduled for (a vote) Jan. 28.

Head Start helps children who are at risk.

A number of years ago I worked as the director of the Pendleton Child Care Center and in that capacity increased in respect for the programs provided for children in the community. Head Start makes a huge difference for the children who attend.

Help the children of our area who most need it. Vote for the ballot measure on Jan. 28.
