With tonight’s February 8th Special Election final result update, the SVSD school bond lost by one single vote. The final YES vote percentage stands at 59.99%! A heartbreaking loss for bond supporters and volunteers. And for all the non-voters and no voters – just a precursor for another school bond in the very near future. The election result will be certified by King County Elections tomorrow, February 23rd.
No word if a re-count will be requested and funded. There’s a big sigh in the Snoqualmie Valley tonight. My friend and school bond supporter summed it up best with, “I feel like I am going to cry.” Back to the drawing board for SVSD officials…..
