The Chamber’s Board of Directors voted to support the Tacoma Public Schools Prop 1 for Neighborhood School Improvements and Safety Upgrades.
Chamber has long supported investments on the betterment of the community’s
quality of life, including improvements to resident families’ learning
environments. In the most recent issue survey of its membership, respondents
ranked K-12 education as the number one issue that government should address.
Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee’s (GAC) consensus through examination of details of the
financing and the increased demand for quality space due to rising student enrollment
necessitated the expenditures. Board
members concluded from GAC’s recommendation that there were compelling safety
concerns and financial benefits to warrant the support of Prop 1.
