ELECTION: Lachney launches misleading political ad

I received a mailing from 2nd District candidate Bruce Lachney suggesting that state Sen. Randi Becker could pass a four-day school week law. Becker is a Republican. The Democrats’ control of our state government ensures that only Democratic-sponsored bills would even be considered.

This non-issue is aimed at Eatonville School District voters. Last year, as a result of budget reductions, a four-day school week, along with other options, was thoughtfully considered by the district, with parent and teacher input. The four-day school week was discarded as unfeasible and unsupported by parents of our district’s schoolchildren.

It appears that if you don’t have any substance to offer voters, you have to turn to innuendo against the incumbent.
