Reader Supports John Kartak For Mayor
July 15, 2017
(SNOHOMISH, WA.) -- "Dear Editor,
We support John Kartak for Mayor of Snohomish because John believes in and will work to protect the small town values of Snohomish and its unique historic legacy.
John Kartak values privacy for the citizens and transparency in our government.
John Kartak honors citizen input and will ensure our voice is heard and respected at City Hall in Snohomish.
This election for a “Strong” Mayor in Snohomish was brought about through the efforts of John Kartak and those that support him.
John Kartak is the only candidate for Mayor that supported Proposition 2. This election is Part 2 of Proposition 2 which enabled the voters to elect a “Strong” Mayor in this election.
Proposition 2 was approved by the voters despite the vehement opposition of the other candidates who are now disingenuously running for Mayor in this election.
John Kartak represents real honest change.
If either of the seated incumbents on the Snohomish City Council wins their intention is to continue the outgoing “weak mayor” system by serving in a part-time capacity and continuing to defer “Executive” authority to the current City Manager who lives in Shoreline and costs the taxpayers of Snohomish well over $200,000 a year.
John Kartak will address the issues of economic health, urban growth, zoning, traffic congestion, wasteful spending, homelessness and the heartbreak of drug addiction in Snohomish.
We ask for your Vote. Yes, John Kartak Mayor!"
Received via email 7/14/17. Mr. Clay adds he is co-managing the John Kartak for Mayor of Snohomish campaign and that Mr. Kartak will be in the Kla-Ha-Ya Days parade July 15. "We will have “Yes, Vote John Kartak Mayor” T-Shirts, Stickers, balloons and flyers for those joining us in the parade," says Clay.
