Federal Way voter has school bond blues | Letters
In the Feb. 14 election on school bonds, did it officially pass or fail?
I am against the way the schools are hammering the property owners to pay for all this. Retired on a fixed income, and every year the homeowners are asked to shell out. This last bond issue for nearly $5 per $1,000 assessed value and more just about made me fall out of my chair. I am single with one income, no kids, retired. Everyone who votes should have to pay not just the homeowner taking the brunt of the bill. Just one of the bonds will cost me $1,200.
Let’s see the apartment renters divvy up at least that much each year. If you can, you can all pay the same, in my opinion.
