As co-presidents of a Parent-Teacher Organizations here in Sequim, we see first-hand how special the Sequim School District is.
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.
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.
I support the Wild Olympics Wilderness & Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 2014. I grew up on the Olympic Peninsula, and though I do not currently reside in the state, it is a matter of great pride for me to share it with my fiancée on visits home, and ultimately to some day share it with our children.
I just read Diana Somerville’s insightful article “Going to pot: Growing our economy, protecting our environment” (Sequim Gazette, March 12, page A-13) and would like to add that almost all the problems cited with growing marijuana are due to society’s foibles.
