KLPW Listeners Support Prop R

The results of the KLPW poll are in. We asked our listeners what they thought about Proposition R for the Washington School District. Prop R will ask 2 questions. The first will be to approve a 9 million dollar no tax increase bond issue that will be used for various improvements throughout the district. The second question will be a 40 million dollar 25 cent tax increase that will pay for a new middle school and other improvements. 61% of our listeners voted yes on both questions. 36% voted no for both. This means our listeners are overwhelming supportive of Prop R and would like to see the school district build a new middle school. The split votes between yes on Question 1 and no on Question 2 were almost nonexistent, showing our listeners are either for or against the 40 million dollar increase. Washington voters will decide on Proposition R during the April 2 election.

Over the course of the past 16 years doing commentary on air and in print, there have sadly been many mass shootings and many predictable politicized reactions.

The shootings at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina, however, stands out for two main reasons.

It involved race, and it was done it a church.
