Letter to the Editor: Don't believe misleading signs

Thursday, October 24, 2019

To the Editor: 

I am a strong supporter of Proposition 1. The anti-Prop 1 signs that have popped up that say “Schools not Pools” are deceitful and misleading.

Passing Proposition 1 does not affect the funding for our highly regarded Shoreline schools. School funding is completely separate.

If anything, supporting Proposition 1 will indirectly have a positive affect on Shoreline schools in at least two ways:

1. Enhancements to our public parks, included in Proposition 1, will encourage healthy play for all students.

2. The pool complex will allow and encourage more Shorecrest and Shorewood students to turn out for the no-cut sport of swimming and diving. High school graduation statistics indicate that students who participate in extracurricular activities such as music, drama and sports have a higher graduation rate.

Please support our community and our schools by voting YES to Proposition 1.

Janet Maines Peterson
