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.
