Put money back into schools

Violated the law and paid the $124 fine.

Twenty-six mph in a camera controlled 20 mph school zone. Fair enough.

The city of Kent publicly praises itself for the superior child safety the camera zones have provided, and that goes without question.

The city also publicly proclaims pride for the $3 million the cameras have earned, then deposited directly into the city coffers.

That deserves the question: The Kent School District is consistently in the news regarding their economic dilemma so crucial they have discontinued all hiring and ordered a severe spending freeze.

Seems to me the cameras for kids safety fines should go back to the Kent School District and the district children the city of Kent is so vigorously safeguarding.
