Kudos to Congressman Dave Reichert for voting for the lifting of the debt ceiling, so that the United States can pay the bill for the spending the United States Congress has authorized. The debt ceiling is a law from the last century from when the United States was a small nation, not the superpower industrial and financial powerhouse of the world. If we don’t pay our bills and default on the debt we incur, we would collapse the world economy.

On behalf of the Snoqualmie Valley Citizens for Schools, I am sending a hearty thank-you out to our community for overwhelmingly voting to approve the two four-year replacement levies that were on the February 11 election ballot.

Certification of the election results will be completed by King County on Feb. 25; however as of the writing of this letter on Feb, 13, each levy has received a 68 percent approval rate. (As of printing, the tech levy was 69 percent, operations levy, 67.7 percent).

By all enrollment projections, the Snoqualmie Valley School District will need another elementary school by the 2016-2017 school year. Planning and design work for the building began last fall and has been paid for with school impact fees from the district’s capital facilities fund. In order to continue with the project, which would provide 29 more classrooms for our Valley’s growing number of children, the school board needs to commit to a bond to raise the estimated $35 million total project costs. Educating our youth is one of the best things we can do for our community.
