Whether or not the Snoqualmie Valley School District is officially done “vetting” a $216 million bond option, one phase in its bond campaign is about to begin. Assistant Superintendent Don McConkey, in describing a series of public meetings on the bond proposal, told the board at its Nov. 7 meeting, “This is the beginning of the campaign.” Only two board members, Scott Hodgins and Carolyn Simpson, attended this part of the meeting, and neither argued with McConkey’s statement, or his follow-up emphasis on the need for a consistent message in this phase of the process.

The consequences of inaction on stable funding for public transit were spelled out last week, as King County Metro Transit detailed drastic cuts to bus service that must be planned now in the absence of funds from the state. “The time for action is now, with the Legislature in special session, to avert cuts to bus service that would be without precedent in the 40-year history of Metro,” said King County Executive Dow Constantine last week. “It is unconscionable that King County should be compelled to cut bus service, due to lack of funding authority from the state.”
