In support of Measure 21-224

I am writing in support of measure 21–224, which would renew the levy for Oregon Coast Community College.
If passed, this measure would renew the college levy at the current rate, meaning NO INCREASE IN TAX RATE for Lincoln County property owners.
But the benefits for Lincoln County would be enormous. Funds from this bond, coupled with an $8 million match from the state, would allow the college to build a state-of-the-art trades education center at its Newport campus. This dedicated trades education center would work in partnership with existing resources such as Angell Job Corps and union apprenticeship programs to provide much-needed technical education for people of all ages in our county.
Funds from the measure would also allow the college to update and improve its existing buildings in Newport, Lincoln City and Waldport to meet current educational needs and improve community disaster preparedness.
As a Lincoln County homeowner, this bond currently costs me just 58 cents per week. I see renewing this investment as tremendous value for the benefits it would bring.
Please join me in voting YES on 21–224.

Yours sincerely,


Patrick Alexander
