The Mercer Island School District levy passed by a comfortable margin: more than 70%.
Homeowners like me are very supportive because we know that good schools translates into higher property values and ever-rising living standards.
About 5,000 people voted, out of a total voting population of 15,000. That's half as many who voted in last November's election. About 1,300 people on the Island can be officially classified as nay-sayers.
