As I was driving home to Gig Harbor, I drove past a “No” on Prop. 1 sign and happened to notice a blue “Yes” on Prop. 1 sign was lying in the bushes. As a supporter of the upcoming capital levy, I thought it must have been a mistake, so I stopped and tried to put the sign back up. It had been snapped in half.
Now I’ve I learned that nearly all of the blue “Yes” on Prop. 1 signs have been either pulled out of the ground, snapped in half or thrown into the bushes for miles throughout our community. It’s one thing to run an honest “No” campaign, but when it’s based on misinformation and destroys property, it’s deplorable.
Significant overcrowding and crumbling schools need to be addressed. For the long term, it’s an investment in our property values and in our future citizens, and for the short term, it will fix the playground and roof at my daughter’s school.
Nothing will change if we don’t support our schools.
