    District seeks committee members for April 2019 Capital Projects Levy Voter’s Pamphlet Statements

    Redmond, Wash. – Lake Washington School District (LWSD) will have a Capital Projects Levy on the April 23, 2019 ballot. Information on the Levy is available on the 2019 Levy page of the LWSD website:  

    Election regulations require LWSD to appoint members to “pro” and “con” committees who are willing to write statements for the local voters’ pamphlet. Since there is an organized promotional campaign committee, the Lake Washington Citizens Levy Committee, the district has asked that organization to name the three individuals who will serve on the “pro” committee.

    The district is also required to solicit members for a “con” committee for the voter’s pamphlet. If you would like the district to consider you for appointment to the committee who will be asked to write a statement in opposition, please email your name, mailing address, phone number, and email address to Diane Jenkins,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 31, 2019.  

    The district expects the School Board will take final action to officially name the committees, assuming volunteers step forward, on February 11, 2019.
