Sumner School Bond Failing

The Sumner School District bond as of this morning, Wednesday, was failing to gain the 60 percent super majority of yes votes necessary for passage.

Voters were supporting the bond by 3,996 yes votes, 58.05 percent, to 2,888 no votes or 41.95 percent.

Updated results will be released by 5 p.m. each day through Feb. 16 except for Saturday and Sunday.

The special election results will be certified by the Pierce County auditor Feb. 21.

The measure, titled Proposition No. 1, asked for more than $114 million of general obligation bonds to rebuild Lakeridge Middle School, purchase land for future school sites and modernize Sumner High School, Victor Falls, Bonney Lake and Maple Lawn elementary schools.
