I live in Washington and have three children go through the school district since kindergarten. I am a taxpayer, also. I see the need for more room at the high school. However, with a recession and no one really knowing if they will have a job next week, next month, etc. . . this is not the time to ask for money regardless of need. I need to pay my mortgage and I need to feed my family. I really need a new car but I will have to wait and pray this old piece of junk keeps going until times are better. We need more room at the high school but it will have to wait for better economic times. Timing is everything.
