Bethel seeks referendum comment

The Bethel School Board will hold a public hearing on state Referendum 52 during its meeting Tuesday.
The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Educational Services Center boardroom, located at 176th St. E. in Spanaway.
Members of the public can comment on the proposed legislation, which would set aside $505 million to fund energy saving projects at public schools, colleges and universities. Proponents say the bond measure would help create new construction jobs and extend the state’s bonding capacity to pay for projects that demonstrate energy savings over time. Opponents say it will saddle the state with too much debt and won’t create the number of jobs or provide the energy savings that supporters say it will.
The school board is scheduled to take a stance on the referendum, which will come before voters in November.

    But the state can’t afford to give teachers their voter approved COST-OF-LIVING. Vote NO Referendum 52
