Chehalis Falls Short as Bond Measure Fails

Posted: Wednesday, April 27, 2011 11:06 am | Updated: 3:54 pm, Wed Mar 28, 2012.

    Cascade Elementary School will be sticking around for a while longer — more time than Chehalis school officials wanted it to.

    Tuesday’s election saw a $27 million, 20-year bond measure to replace the aging facility and transform R.E. Bennett Elementary School into shared learning and district office space fail under the state’s supermajority requirement, as only 51.9 percent of voters said yes to replacing the school. Although a majority was reached, Washington state law requires 60 percent for long-term bond measures to pass.

    Chehalis did not have enough reminders to vote in their push to get the mail in ballots returned, If I am an example. I almost missed voting, and I usually never do that in any kind of election.
