“Tenino School District voters turned out in support of a $7.95 million capital projects levy, according to a vote count Tuesday night.
At the same time, a $53.9 million proposed capital bond measure was rejected by voters in Yelm Community Schools.
‘I dont think Yelm has a chance of coming back,’ Thurston County Auditor Mary Hall said. ‘And I think Teninos victory is certain.'”
“Yelms request was for a 21-year bond that required a supermajority of 60 percent for passage. By late Tuesday, the 2,220 yes votes represented only 49.23 percent of the ballots counted.
‘Sixty percent is a tough number to get on a bond,’ Yelm Superintendent Andy Wolf said,” quoting Lisa Pemberton, The Olympian.
