Letters to the Editor

  • Dear Editor,

    With the recent election, Snohomish County Fire District 7 would like to say thank you to the people we serve for your continued support.

    Voters have restored funding for our fire levy. This lid lift will help to fund training and certifications for emergency personnel, fire station construction, facility maintenance, emergency response, fire & emergency medical supplies, apparatus and equipment replacement.

  • As a past Mill Creek City Councilmember I am utterly confused and concerned where we are in our negotiations with Fire District 7. Our contract will be ending at the end of this year. The lack of transparency by the city council and city manager on this major service has me questioning what is going on.

  • I am a longtime Bothell resident and I was beyond disappointed to hear that Governor Jay Inslee recently announced that he did not believe there was support in the legislature to close the special-interest tax break on capital gains. The legislature is currently held in contempt by the Washington Supreme Court due to its failure to amply fund our public schools as is required by our Constitution.

  • Dear Editor:

    We don’t need games in Olympia. We need to get a state budget passed. The state legislature is in special session now because they did not get a budget passed before the regular session ended.
