Letters to the Editor

  • I have had the pleasure and honor to serve as Mill Creek City Manager not once, but twice; with service the first time from 1995 to the start of 2005 and most recently as Interim City Manager over the last eight months. As the Mill Creek City Council  has  moved through the process of  selecting its next City Manager, I have been reflecting on my time here in Mill Creek and want to express my appreciation to the community, the City Council, and the City staff for their support and confidence for my return.

  • As our Mill Creek City Council starts the New Year, I encourage the council to reflect on what occurred over the past four years with regard to our previous City Managers.

  • The Building Our Largest Dementia Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act has just been signed into law, and I want to thank Senators Maria Cantwell & Patty Murray, and Congresswoman Suzan DelBene for having been cosponsors of this meaningful legislation.

  • When Jared Mead heads off to Olympia to take on his legislative position in January 2019, the Mill Creek City Council will again have an opportunity to select a replacement for the vacancy he leaves on the Council.

    This is the perfect time for the Council to choose diversity over cronyism.

  • Without diversity on the council, there is little representation.

  • The recent article in the Mill Creek Beacon Mayor’s Corner written by Pam Pruitt as her opinion titled “Farewell and Thank You, Rebecca” has me in shock and disbelief.  Mayor Pruitt continually praises our former terminated City Manager Rebecca Polizzotto throughout her article, even stating “it is unfortunate Mrs. Polizzotto will not be part of our city government in the future.”  Why would Mayor Pruitt make such a statement?
