‘Yes’ vote is needed to keep future bright


Once again it is time to think about how much our children mean to us. Are they important enough to actually continue paying the school levy we have been paying in the past, or will we let our own greed and selfishness prevail? Even with the levy money the schools are strapped for cash. Without the levy money the most basic of their educational needs will be cut, and cut, and cut.

Even though my children have graduated, I continue to volunteer at one of the grade schools on a regular basis. What I see there is the future of Enumclaw. These bright eager children have the potential to make our community and our country better than it all ready is. Without a first class education, many will fall far short of their potential.

Don’t let it be your fault that they do not get a good education. Vote “yes” to continue the school levy. Vote “yes” for a bright future for Enumclaw, Wash., and America.
