The Kitsap County Commissioners are elected to act on behalf of the citizens of this county. They have relegated their responsibilities to an unelected layer of quasi government, the Puget Sound Regional Council (PSRC). Yes, they are elected and have the authority to govern for the people residing in Kitsap County. They should not give their power to PSRC.

Recently, NKSD announced Capital Program Public Meetings, as they have $1.2 million left from the 2000 capital facilities improvement. First, when did North Kitsap High School’s renovations reach completion? I drop my daughter off everyday and there is only the 1st phase currently looking as if it might be completed by the end of summer (the library and one of the classroom hallways). There is much left to do. Why would we be considering what to do with the $1.2 million “leftover” when we have not even finished NKHS yet? I sat through many board meetings where change orders were being submitted and the School Board had to approve more funds.
