TACOMA: Proposition 1 worthy of voter support

My wife and I are both graduates of Tacoma Public Schools, as are our three children. Last year our granddaughter graduated with honors from Wilson High School. We are now retired, with no children in school and on a limited income.

We estimate our cost of supporting the school bond issue in Tacoma to be less than $60 per year as an average Tacoma homeowner. I can think of quite a few expenditures in that amount which we experienced last year. None were as important as the kids of Tacoma.

Proposition 1 gets two votes in our household, both yes.
