Letters to the Editor

  • South County Fire wants to thank the voters for approving a benefit charge during the recent election. We sincerely appreciate your support and trust in us as we move forward with this new funding model to better serve our taxpayers.

  • It’s time again for the existing Council members to choose a replacement for an empty spot on the Council. Our city is undergoing a lot of problems at this time – the appointment of old council members who were part of the mindset that got us to where we are today is not acceptable. We need fresh minds and new perspectives on the Council.

  • Ballots are due August 4th. Just a few days.

    Please do your best to weigh the pros and cons for that measure. Do your best, as I will, to consider the different candidates (their statements in the voters’ pamphlet and a review of their websites’ info) for the state and federal offices. And then get our ballots mailed or into the drop box.

  • On August 4, we have the opportunity to make a significant and meaningful impact on our school communities.  The Everett School District’s capital bond, originally scheduled for the April election, is being placed back on the ballot.  If it passes with 60% approval, the bond would provide for much-needed improvements to our schools.

    Now more than ever, the investment in our future is essential. 

  • I wanted to thank our community for participating in the recent discussions asking voters to consider a benefit charge. The Board of Fire Commissioners for South County Fire approved a resolution to place a benefit charge measure on the November General Election ballot.
