City takes welcome action . . .

This evening the Maple Valley City Council took action on a resolution to support our bond measure.  They join the Chamber of Commerce in recognizing the role that the school district plays in the vision they have for the city.  Our new high school proposal and the Future Ready initiative are aligned with the city vision and enhance the effort to bring diversified employers to the area.

Many people came out to share their support of the resolution with at least fifteen signing up to urge the council to unanimously pass the resolution.  It passed with all seven council members voting yes.  We shared our appreciation for the vote and commitment to our school system with a standing ovation.  There was a positive feeling in the room that was different than what I felt with our 2011 failed bond measure.
