Wright brings leadership | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

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’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.

In a recent Herald article, Kelly accurately pointed out that a new Highway 9 WalMart will hinder traffic. He also correctly stated that most Marysville residents thought the project was dead. Although the current supporters of the current mayor mock him for this, he was spot on with his comments. Kelly feels deeply about democracy and wants to ensure we all have a say in things like annexations. I think most of us in Marysville — and most Americans — would agree. Not the current mayor, though. He says most people are happy with it because that’s what they told him after the fact. Maybe, maybe not. Either way, a vote would have been appropriate.

Finally, Kelly holds the city accountable for its purchase of the old Coca-Cola bottling plant. The city paid $3.75 million for the property worth much less, then decided it didn’t want the property after all. Only $2.3 million has been recovered, but the city counts a tentative purchase option and the remaining property as assets to cover up the loss. Talk about fuzzy math. Once again Wright hit the nail on the head.

Change is never easy, but it is sometimes necessary. I believe Kelly Wright will bring better leadership to Marysville. Please join me in voting for Kelly Wright.
