What’s in a name? Well, a little bit of everything. Recognition, inspiration, belief and hope are all associated with a certain nomenclature. Titles aid in assembling cultural competence and sense of place, defining an existence in history.
First of all I am not anti-school just anti-waste and mismanagement.
Another legislative session, more missed opportunities | 45th Legislative District Candidate's Column
If the state Legislature were graded on its performance this year, it would have received an “incomplete.” This year’s legislative session in Olympia ended with so few results that one newspaper proclaimed it the “Do-Little Legislature.” When it came to our schools, easing traffic congestion, or protecting our rights and safety, State Senate leadership chose partisan unity over the leadership and independence required to serve our families and businesses.
In February, the Lake Washington School District’s (LWSD) Proposition 3 fell just short of the 60 percent “yes” votes needed to approve the $755 million bond to address our urgent growth crisis. In the April 22 special election, the district’s Proposition 1 asks voters to approve an updated bond measure of $404 million. Proposition 1 funds our most urgent needs for seven new schools. The remaining $351 million originally proposed in February for the Strategic Modernization Plan will be proposed to voters in future years. The district’s website, www.lwsd.org, details more information under “April 22 Bond Measure.”
