DESPITE THE LOW TURNOUT, at the end of the day this project is the right thing for Goshen. It is proportionate with what we can afford and appropriate for what we need. The current pool at Goshen High School turns 52 today. It’s time. Our high-caliber music programs have grown dramatically and students are practicing their instruments in the hallways. It’s time. Some of our middle school students are eating their lunch at 10:30 a.m., the first of four lunch periods, in order for all students to be fed throughout a normal school day. It’s time.
Tuesday’s vote wasn’t about Republicans or Democrats, conservatives or liberals. It was about a community assessing a need, determining the cost and making a responsible decision. That’s life, not politics. Good job, Goshen.
