Letter to the Editor: School bond — tour convinced us it's needed

I must admit that I was highly skeptical when I first heard of the Vashon High School bond issue. Why remodel a school that looks so great as you drive past it? To learn more about the situation, my wife and I took one of the school tours being offered, and grim reality quickly set in as we saw, firsthand, the inside story of overcrowded classrooms and inadequate facilities.

Sure, we can always patch it up and get along for another year or so. We have been thinking like this for years, and now we find ourselves reaching the end of the road. We have an obsolete and inadequate facility in serious need of renovation, and now is the time to do something about it. Building costs will never be lower, and further delay will only cost us more in the long run. Now is the time to bite the bullet and move forward.
