“The power under the constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can and undoubtedly will, be recalled.”

~ George Washington (1787)

Touchet bond vote

The Touchet School Board recently approved a resolution to put a $6.5 million bond measure before voters in February. The funds would be used along with state matching funds for complete renovation of the secondary school.

#According to Superintendent Susan Bell, the proposed renovation would be the first major work on the building, which was completed in 1975 and currently houses students in fifth through 12th grades. “The secondary building is badly in need of repair,” she said. “We’re to the point of having serious roof leaks when it rains.”
