PUYALLUP: Schools are low priority for too many

It looks like the Puyallup school bond has failed. More than 10,000 residents of the Puyallup School District voted no. They do not want to pay an extra $12 a month in taxes to improve our schools.

Every night of the week, restaurants on South Hill are jam-packed and Puyallup residents can’t spare one meal’s worth of money for schools? I cannot imagine what people are thinking or where our priorities lie anymore.

If these are public school parents who voted against their own kids, they need their head examined. If these are private school and home school parents voting against the betterment of the community as a whole because they don’t use the public school, they are selfish and shortsighted. And if all these no votes are people who are anti-government everything, who also probably tune into Fox News propaganda, then that is the saddest statement of all.
