School bond proposal supporters hold rally and doorbelling campaign

Supporters of the Ferndale School District bond proposal were out doorbelling to contact many voters within the Ferndale School District boundaries yesterday following a morning rally at Pioneer Park.

The 9am rally drew a crowd of over 200 families, school district staff and students outside the Pioneer Park Pavilion Community Center. After hearing from a few speakers and having the opportunity to sign up for doorbelling assignments, many headed up to Main Street and Pioneer Bridge to wave signs and cheer support for a $112-million bond proposal on a Special Election ballot mailed last week.

The event was organized by the bond proposal support group, Support Ferndale Schools. The group said over 40 teams of doorbellers signed up to contact more than 2000 homes over the 2 hours following the rally.

The bond proposal is identical to the one on the General Election ballot last November which received 58.6% approval but failed to pass the 60% super majority requirement for municipal bonds.

Many in the group returned after 2 hours of doorbelling for a hosted lunch put on by the organizers.

Special Election ballots need to be dropped off in ballot drop boxes available throughout the county by 8pm on Tuesday, February 12th, or mailed early enough to be postmarked by that date.

The Ballot Drop Boxes that will be open for the February 12th Special Election are

  • Birch Bay (North Whatcom Fire & Rescue)
  • Whatcom County Courthouse
  • Custer Elementary School
  • Everson WECU branch
  • Ferndale City Hall parking lot
  • Lummi Nation Administration Building
  • Sumas Post Office
