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.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
