Free Press Page 6 Thursday, April 23, 2015 continued from page 4 sure that whatever they did would not run afoul of the law. To me that's good public stewardship. But I've since learned of district officials volunteering with the Yes for Our Kids-Cheney School District Committee for Good Schools. I've had callers with connections to the school district tell me school staff have been asked to make phone calls for the bond, and I know officials have gone out and put up signs from the committee urging a yes vote. A check of the Yes for Our Kids Facebook page shows a group of smiling students holding these signs. Are not all of these also use of school district resources? Even if the phone calling and oth- er efforts are intended to get out the vote, my question is would that same effort have been made in an election without a school district measure on the ballot? Would the commit- tee and school district officials have made phone calls promoting other measures, such as last November's Initiative 1351 to reduce class sizes? It doesn't pass the straight face test to say these efforts are only a get out the vote initiative. There are just a lot of issues surrounding this bond that beg for more public discussion, but we're not likely to get it unless the bond fails a second time. There needs to be clarity, and more transparency. I know school officials feel they've done all they can to get the public involved, and I understand Director Rick Mount's frustration yented at a March meeting about the lack of public attendance at their informa- tion events. And for what it's worth, A healthy environment makes all the difference in the world. Earth Day 2015 while I feel the $44.88 million bond maybe goes too far with some things, I also feel opponents $11.6 million alternative doesn't go far enough. But for now, everything comes down to the vote on April 28. :John McCallum can be reached at jmac@cheneyfreepress, com.
