Vote Yes, Yes for Capital Facilities Area

Join with me and vote Yes, Yes for the Spokane Valley Capital Facility Area on the ballot that you have received by mail. This two-part ballot asks our vote for the Spokane Valley Library Capital Facilities Area. This means that the people who live within the use area would form a tax district for the library bond which includes Spokane Valley, Millwood and Central, East and West Valley school districts. This would leave out Deer Park and Airway Heights.

The second Yes vote approves the tax assessment for the proposed construction bond of the two new library buildings and the remodel of the Argonne Library. We need a 60 percent supermajority to make the Yes, Yes vote happen.

Libraries are a vibrant focus in our community as an education resource, community meeting space and a site for workforce development. Business organizations, including Spokane Valley Business Association and the Greater Spokane Valley Chamber of Commerce, support this bond issue for economic development in our community.

As citizens this is an excellent opportunity for all of us to build our community resources. We need to vote Yes, Yes.
