Our community has supported Sequim Schools in the past. We now have the opportunity to make a significant improvement to our students’ learning environment.
I have always lived on a budget, and have been against most bond issues because I either thought them unnecessary or overpriced. If I have to live on a budget, and do without, or make do with less, then government should be held to the same standard.
The Sequim City Council seems to have forgotten what it means to provide leadership for our community. If, by a 6-1 vote, the council can “provide general support” to the school district in “seeking voter approval to fund the acknowledged need for districtwide improvements in its education facilities,” why vote down a resolution supporting the bond issue?
On April 22 voters in the Sequim School District will have the opportunity to approve a bond providing funds to build a new elementary school and to upgrade and remodel schools across the district.
