MARYSVILLE — Washington state Attorney General Rob McKenna wanted the Greater Marysville Tulalip Chamber of Commerce to know that he's touted their communities as a success story to other state organizations, even as he acknowledged that the state government needs to step up parts of its service to citizens of Marysville, Tulalip and beyond. McKenna opened his remarks at the Chamber's July 29 Business Before Hours by describing Silicon Energy, which he visited with city of Marysville officials on May 11, as one of the companies that "wants to be in Marysville," due to the city's business-friendly climate. He likewise praised the Marysville Arts & Technology High School as an example of the "innovation in education" that he sees being done by the Marysville School District.

Timmy Eyman’s at it again. (I’ll call him Timmy until he shows an adult’s sense of social responsibility.) Each time Timmy backs something, I get such a knee-jerk reaction to lean the opposite way that I have to sit back to inspect my own position. But he did get me to try to reason through the hoopla surrounding Monroe’s attempt to install red-light cameras at two intersections.

SMOKEY POINT — With a few shovels of turned earth, the goal of an I-5 over-crossing at 156th Street came one step closer to reality on Aug. 11. "By next year we should be able to traipse over it for the first time," said Marysville Mayor Jon Nehring, who was joined at the official groundbreaking ceremony at 156th Street NE and Smokey Point Boulevard by members of the Marysville City Council and city staff, as well as guests such as former Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendall and representatives for U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen. Nehring recalled how the City Council had approved a construction bid of approximately $9.7 million by Renton-based Guy F. Atkinson Construction in June, as well as how Larsen had visited the planned construction site in February with city staff, including Marysville City Engineer John Cowling. By connecting Smokey Point Boulevard to Twin Lakes Avenue across I-5, Nehring hopes not only to improve public safety and emergency response times, but also to ease traffic congestion on 172nd Street NE and provide another access point to attract as many as 10,000 light industrial and manufacturing jobs in north Marysville.

When lawmakers arrived Nov. 28 at the state Capitol for a special session, many of my fellow legislators and I were hopeful we could vote within the first couple days on a solution that would close a $2 billion state operating budget gap without raising taxes — and then go home, thus saving taxpayers the expense of an extended session.
