Maintain buildings without more taxes

There have been many letters regarding the Everett school bond. The school buildings do not educate … the teachers are the educators. The rejected $259 million bond, which would mature within 20 years, would be passed on to many of our kids, our future taxpayers. As for broken restroom doors, why are they not repaired? A well maintained building will last and last … the safety and education of students should be the No. 1 priority, as well as maintenance!

I have hoped to see a “for sale” sign on the vacated administration property, with the money going toward schools — no tax increase. Today’s deductions are tomorrow’s taxpayers.
