Education is most vital to our future

I have called Vashon Island my home for 20 years and have contributed time and money to dozens of island organizations — everything from those who protect pets to land, from the oldest to our youngest citizens and for every kind of sports, arts and service group our citizens have created to enrich island life. Each provide an important dimension of color and strength to the fabric of our community.

And yet if I could support only one community asset, there is no question it would be the Vashon Island School District. There is nothing more vital to the health and future of our society than to educate our children.

I urge everyone to renew the school district’s Maintenance and Operations Levy this February. Vote yes. It is vital and it is worth every penny.
