I am a longtime Bothell resident and I was beyond disappointed to hear that Governor Jay Inslee recently announced that he did not believe there was support in the legislature to close the special-interest tax break on capital gains. The legislature is currently held in contempt by the Washington Supreme Court due to its failure to amply fund our public schools as is required by our Constitution.
We don’t need games in Olympia. We need to get a state budget passed. The state legislature is in special session now because they did not get a budget passed before the regular session ended.
Thank you, families of students and members of the community who live in Mill Creek and the southern region of the district, for attending the special board meeting on March 30 at Jackson High addressing district growth and the implications for responding to that growth.
I was excited to attend Rep. John Lovick's Town Hall last Saturday.
John Lovick has always been happy to hold Town Halls to answer questions and inform voters in his 44th Legislative District about what is going on in Olympia.
I was so glad to hear Mr. Lovick say education is one of his top priorities and his goal is to find a way to fully fund education as ordered by the court. I am also very glad Rep. Lovick indicated that the solution must be through new revenue.
