Don’t forget to fund Newton Promise

Don’t forget to fund Newton Promise

To the Editor:

Let’s be sure that a due and generous share of the funds for economic development coming to Newton from the State of Iowa get to the Newton Promise program. Many of the effects of the closing of Maytag are beyond our control. Newton Promise is one where we can take action in a very positive way for the families, schools and businesses here.

And if we wonder whether public funds are appropriate for this, let’s remember the taxpayers’ investment in the post-World War II G.I. Bill and the great good it did for both individuals and the nation.
