Bond issue means future success for community | Letter to the Editor
Tuesday, April 28, we have the opportunity to advance our communities of Black Diamond, Enumclaw and surrounding areas to a whole new level of community excellence. We can do this simply by voting “yes” on the Enumclaw School District bond issue.
A 60 percent “yes” vote on this bond issue means: a completely remodeled Enumclaw High School with vastly improved safety for the students; a new elementary school for our Black Diamond children; taxes for our schools will not be increased over the present level.
My wife, Fay, and I have lived on the Plateau 49 years. During those years we have operated funeral homes, served on the Enumclaw School Board and tended to other responsibilities on the Plateau. We believe the success of our schools leads to success for our jobs, businesses, our communities. Please join us voting “yes” for the school bond issue April 28.
