I have already voted — against the school levy. I will tell you why. Some years ago when the bureaucrats and educators(?) were beating the drum in support of the state lottery, we were told that 100 percent of the profit from the lottery would be devoted to schools. We were also led to believe that there would never, ever again be any special levy for education needs. Just like all politicians, they lied.
Approximately 10 percent of the lottery profit does go to educational purposes, the rest, 90 percent, is spent on any whimsical project the politicians can dream up.
Hey Tim Eyman, we need a referendum to repeal the lottery unless and until the profits are given to education as promised. Unless that comes to pass, I shall never vote for any special levy for schools.
