Hot Topic in Beaufort County


WASHINGTON-- One of the hottest election topics in Beaufort County is the $33 million school bond. If approved by the voters, the money will go to schools like P.S. Jones Middle School in Washington. Some teachers, school administrators, and parents have been pushing for the total replacement of the school, which they say is falling apart. Critics of the bond claim the county would be better served by repairing the schools and providing increased maintenance.
