Failed again to fund education

The Legislature has again failed miserably to do their jobs and fully fund education, as mandated by our state Constitution.

The party in power will continue to lie to voters and play with the numbers to ensure that on the surface we have a $2.8 billion deficit. If we are so out of money, then why were Senate and House appropriation bills increasing by $2.9 and $2.7 billion respectively?

The citizens of Snohomish County need to not be fooled by the “political shell game” and realize that reckless spending is out of control. The Legislature has done nothing this session but raise taxes and cut programs that are core functions of government while continuing to fund projects for their special interest groups.
