The Post Guest Column: Issue 23 funding supports everyone

By Paul Marnecheck, Ward 4 Councilman, North Royalton

This primary election affords voters the opportunity to keep our health and human services levy in place to help over 200,000 children, families and seniors in our county. Issue 23 is a 4.8-mill renewal levy that is not a tax increase and will provide approximately $130 million annually for the next eight years. These funds provide services that are important for all of us. Any one of us – our children, our parents, our families, our friends – may one day need assistance in dealing with a crisis or a trauma.
