McCleary decision: Blame Tim Eyman for our funding woes

Legislators, both Republican and Democrat, have struggled to balance the needs of the state with the available resources. And now they are held in contempt by the court because there are not enough resources [“Supreme Court finds Legislature in contempt on education funding,” Politics Northwest, Sept. 11].

The people of Washington should direct their contempt to where it is deserved: to Tim Eyman. By appealing to the selfishness in us all, he has made impossible the tasks of our Legislature. I honor our representatives of both parties who are trying to serve us with wisdom and practicality. I have nothing but contempt for Eyman, who is too much of a coward to run for office where he could try to be responsible instead of being reprehensible.

Edward Roe, Silverdale
