Chamber backs school measures

The board of directors at Vashon’s Chamber of Commerce voted earlier this month to support the school district’s two bond measures currently before voters for the Feb. 8 mail-in election.

In a letter to its members, Board President Linda Bianchi said the board opted to endorse the two measures because it “believes that a strong school system is vital to a healthy business environment.”

The two measures, totalling around $51 million, would fund a new classroom building at Vashon High School, a remodel of the existing classroom building and a new all-weather track and synthetic turf field.
