Seattle Times letters to the editor

Washington state’s financial woes

What about lottery money?

We’re hearing about how the state has no money for road repair and bridges.

Now we hear that we can’t pay our teachers more money to teach our children. We’re always hearing about not enough money to take care of our schools and roads. When we voted for the state lottery, we were told that all proceeds would go to the state’s general fund, for our roads and schools, so we wouldn’t have tax increases for these things.

Where is the money from the lottery going?

Audrey Reasy, Seattle
