For most people, our home is our greatest investment. The recession has reduced our net worth, our homes have lost much of their value, our retirement accounts are valued at half of what they were and our savings accounts are offering less than a half of a percent in annual interest.

The Queen Creek Unified School District is the highest rated school district in Maricopa County and ranked fourth in the state. The best way to protect your assets is to strengthen the value of your home and those around you.

Please vote “YES” on Nov. 5th.
