As a former teacher and military veteran, “Why my Constitutional issue is important to me” piqued my interest [Sequim Gazette, page B-8, March 5, 2014].
As a member of the Community Facilities Committee for the Sequim School District, I would like to share a few observations.
Though not a scholar of the state constitution, there is a question I would like to ask. Where, in our state constitution is the power granted to the governor to arbitrarily change the legally enacted laws with which he does not agree? Personally, I cannot believe that the governor has, or had, the authority to abolish the death penalty in the state simply because he doesn’t not agree with it.
What do you think is the best type of investing? Stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate? WRONG. The best investment we can make is in our community and particularly our schools. Next month voters in the Sequim School District will be asked to vote for a school bond to fund multiple school construction projects.
