Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
The voice of reason won over the myriad “Vote yes for Wa-Hi” signs.
In my opinion the Walla Walla School Board did an overkill. You know people looked at the complete picture, and their pocketbooks.
Washington voters did the math — pay your current bills before you make new ones.
I appreciate all who wrote in to the “letters to the editor” and voiced the concern about the cost.
When the Edison bond is paid in full, then and only then will it be the right time to approach it again. The economy is tight and property owners don’t want more taxes.
Also, College Place High School will be completed by then and then it will be time to look at this issue again.
My opinion is a new building does not help the students learn more, it just means they are going to have to apply themselves just as they will have to do in the real world.
The teachers are not at fault. It takes a village to raise a child — teachers, parents and even the student.
Way to go, voters. They used reason rather than emotion to tell the school board how we feel.
