'OUR Marysville,' Mayor call on Chase Bank to support schools

MARYSVILLE — After writing a letter to JPMorgan Chase Bank, whose Marysville branch was the site of a protest by "OUR Marysville" and Working Washington on June 24, asking them to fund the Marysville School District for $5 million, Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring is continuing to work with OUR Marysville to encourage Chase Bank to support school programs due to be cut in Marysville.

Nehring signed a pledge at the July 6 meeting of OUR Marysville — with "OUR" standing for "Organization United for Reform" — with city and state elected officials at Jennings Park, in which he agreed to write the letter and to work with other mayors in Snohomish County to engage Chase in this effort.

On Aug. 9 at 2 p.m., Nehring and OUR Marysville will be meeting at Comeford Park to call on Chase again to support the struggling schools of Marysville.

Tulalip Tribal Chair Mel Sheldon Jr. has also been invited, and OUR Marysville plans to thank the Tulalip Tribes in public for supporting the Marysville School District.

Tulalip Tribal members will be given an opportunity to talk about why they've chosen to support Marysville's schools.
