LWSD seeking committee members for levies and bond voter’s pamphlet statements

Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is seeking potential authors for the voter's pamphlet statements opposing the two district replacement levies and one bond measure that will appear on the Feb. 11, 2014, ballot.

Election regulations require LWSD to appoint members to "pro" and "con" committees who are willing to write statements for the local voters' pamphlet. Since there is an organized promotional campaign committee, the Lake Washington Citizens Levy Committee, the district has asked that organization to name the three individuals who will serve on the "pro" committees.

The district is soliciting members for "con" committees for the voter's pamphlet. If citizens would like to be considered for appointment to one or more of the committees, who will be asked to write a statement in opposition, they are asked to email their name, mailing address, phone number and email address to Diane Jenkins at, no later than Friday, Nov. 22.

Citizens are also asked to identify which of the three committees they would like to participate in:

  • Con Committee: Replacement of Existing Educational Programs and Operations Levy
  • Con Committee: Replacement of Existing Capital Projects Levies
  • Con Committee: General Obligation Bonds

Citizens may apply for membership to more than one committee.

The district expects the school board will take final action to officially name the committees, assuming volunteers step forward, on Dec. 9.
