Ellensburg bond fails

ELLENSBURG, Wash. -   The bond for the Ellensburg School District has failed.

Fifty-five percent of voters approved the bond, but 60 percent is needed for the bond to pass.

The $42-million bond would have gone towards replacing a middle school and renovating a elementary school.

We're certainly disappointed," said John Glenewinkel, superintendent of The Ellensburg School District. "We're very grateful for the voters who came out and supported us, and we take very seriously the concerns of the voters that couldn't support this issue."

The next thing the school district is going to do is to ask the voters who voted against the bond about their concerns and make some adjustments, Glenewinkel said.
