With all of the hugely negative political news everyone has been hammered with lately, it almost seems that a lot of people may be pretty apathetic about voting in the upcoming Nov. 5 election. However, I once heard that changing things on the federal level is a pretty hard thing to do while doing the same along local lines can at least sometimes yield changes that benefit the community.
Not long ago, Americans were told that Detroit, one of America’s largest cities, filed for Bankruptcy. But, wait, since then, Washington D.C., Camden, N.J., Cincinnati, Ohio, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Calif. and Baltimore, Md., are all facing similar fates. Can it happen in Snohomish County? Most would say, “No way!” But, I would caution you that the 1,000,000 people who once lived in Detroit and fled probably said the same thing. So, what does this have to do with a County Council race in Snohomish County? It has everything to do with it.

Boom. Kaboom. Bang. Shots ring out in our schools, shopping malls, streets, and we believe we are powerless to stop it. Responding to the chaos, police around the U.S. end up shooting mentally ill individuals because the police don’t know of any other way to interact with them — to calm the storm of symptoms. Enraged and scared, citizens yell for gun control, arming children, armed guards in schools, return to religion — anything to save a child, anything to stop the madness.
We understand that the city of Marysville has acquired the property that was once the tree farm belonging to the Dashiell family. This will be a welcome addition to our city parks.
Community input on our search for a new superintendent is being accepted through Feb. 11. The following are some priorities that have come up in my conversations with teachers and parents. Please consider sending all or some of the these items, as well as any additional input you may have, to Dr. Wayne Robertson, Superintendent Search Consultant, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will soon be a vacancy in the office of Superintendent of Schools for the Marysville School District, and I for one will be glad to participate in bringing in a fresh face with fresh ideas for the district.
