On behalf of the Lakewood School District Staff and Board of Directors, I want to sincerely thank the voters, volunteers and elected officials for their active support of our students and schools. The quality of our communities is inextricably connected to the quality of our schools. With the support received from this past levy election, that connection is strengthened.
As I sit in my office, I am looking out at the beautiful blue sky and the sun is shining so bright, I can’t help but think of “Summer.” Summer arrives on June 20, with it also comes all types of community activities. This letter is in reference to one of those longstanding events and one in particular which has brought so much enjoyment to so many, and it may very well be no more unless people get involved.
Congratulations to the many school districts in Snohomish County that recently passed their replacement levy elections. My district, Lakewood, has an election set for April 17.
My name is JoAnn Sewell. I am the volunteer coordinator at the Marysville Community Food Bank. I just read your column, and couldn’t agree more.
The outrage over the recent incidents of child abuse at two major, high profile university athletic departments continues to fill the national print and electronic media.
Marysville students are lucky that Pete Lundberg is running for the Marysville School Board, District 3.
When Dennis Kendall retired mid-term as mayor in 2010 and was replaced by Jon Nehring, our city was quite fortunate. He served nine years on the City Council of Marysville and is very knowledgeable of the work to be done.
I’ve been reading the letters to the editor for the last several weeks regarding the Marysville Mayoral election.
Dear Editor, with careful consideration of the candidates for Marysville Mayor I will be supporting Jon Nehring.
When the public agency "The City of Marysville" made efforts to acquire a portion of our yard for trail purposes my husband communicated to me that Director of Parks and Recreation Jim Bellew came to our property and asked us to donate it. He did the same to at least one of our other neighbors. Not knowing what they wanted we had nothing to base a decision or value on or what property "The City of Marysville" actually wanted, so we continued to use our property for various things with "no retaliation".
Some of you might remember what it stands for, Throw the Hypocritical Rascals Out. It’s time to act on this locally. The empire of Marysville has a great alternative for leadership. We have found the right person for mayor of our city, he is Kelly Wright. How could anyone vote back into office the people that created our problems?
Recently, while I was out for an afternoon shopping expedition, I made the grievous error of crossing State Street at 94th (I was leaving the west side of State and crossing to the Northeast corner of 94th), as you may or may not know there is no crosswalk there.
We have received a couple inquiries regarding the purchase of private property by government and specifically a concern that the city of Marysville overpaid for a property acquisition.
I have known Jon outside of his Mayoral capacity for years, and have always respected him as a person. I know that Jon Nehring and his family have been heavily involved in making Marysville a better community long before he held elected office. I have personally provided service in the community for years as well, through church, Boy Scouts and other activities, but have never seen a Mayor as supportive as he is, in recognizing citizens for their volunteer work.
I’m supporting Kelly Wright for mayor of Marysville. Kelly has experience with local government all over the world and has correctly identified issues with the city’s current leadership which must be addressed.
I must respond to a series of comments and letters regarding the current appointed mayor of Marysville and his challenger, Kelly Wright.
The cross country teams at Marysville Getchell and Marysville-Pilchuck high schools want to say a huge “thank you” to the Marysville community for their support of our fifth Tomahawk Twilight Meet this past Oct. 1.
During the last several years I have had the pleasure of working with Steve Muller on a variety of volunteer committees and activities within the Marysville School District.
I read the Everett Herald’s recent article endorsing various candidates for the upcoming Marysville City Council race with interest. Unfortunately, the information on Scott Allen who is running for Position 5 was all too brief. In my association with Scott, I have found him to be incredibly well read and versed about the challenges Marysville faces; he has lived in Marysville for a long time and is a tireless volunteer with church, Kiwanis and the Masons.
After researching the information on both our current Mayor Jon Nehring and his opponent Kelly Wright this election season the voting members of our family have decided to vote for Jon Nehring to continue as Mayor of Marysville.
