Letters to the Editor

  • Ballots are due August 4th. Just a few days.

    Please do your best to weigh the pros and cons for that measure. Do your best, as I will, to consider the different candidates (their statements in the voters’ pamphlet and a review of their websites’ info) for the state and federal offices. And then get our ballots mailed or into the drop box.

  • On August 4, we have the opportunity to make a significant and meaningful impact on our school communities.  The Everett School District’s capital bond, originally scheduled for the April election, is being placed back on the ballot.  If it passes with 60% approval, the bond would provide for much-needed improvements to our schools.

    Now more than ever, the investment in our future is essential. 

  • I wanted to thank our community for participating in the recent discussions asking voters to consider a benefit charge. The Board of Fire Commissioners for South County Fire approved a resolution to place a benefit charge measure on the November General Election ballot.

  • I am grateful that in all its understandable focus on the COVID-19 virus, Congress did not lose sight of the need to improve care and support for people with Alzheimer’s and other dementia.
