Members of House, Dahlquist and Hurst, urge support for Enumclaw School District levy | Letter

As your state representatives, we are encouraging the voters in the Enumclaw School District to vote “yes” on the M&O levy that is currently on the ballot.

As your state representatives, we are encouraging the voters in the Enumclaw School District to vote “yes” on the M&O levy that is currently on the ballot.

In last week’s edition of The Courier-Herald, Sen. Roach, also from the 31st Legislative District, was in error about what is in the ballot measure that is currently before the voters; it has absolutely nothing to do with bonds that would pay for buildings. This measure is about paying for school operations that educate our kids. Although the majority of the district’s budget comes from state funding, 20 percent of their budget is dependent on passage of this levy.

Last year, both of us supported the state budget that included a substantial increase in resources after years of dramatic cuts to local school districts.

Enumclaw School District has been diligent in spending resources wisely and has a consistent track record of clean financial audits. By voting “yes,” your tax dollars will help pay for the day-to-day operation of our schools; transportation, athletics and activities, technology, books, professional development, paraeducators, custodians, substitute teachers and specialists. People and supplies are vital to maintaining a healthy and vibrant learning environment for all our students.

Please join us in voting “yes” for kids.

Rep. Cathy Dahlquist,

Rep. Christopher Hurst,

31st Legislative District
