Saint Edward State Park remains a public sanctuary of tranquility and the natural environment in our rapidly urbanizing area.

Selling out our park and turning it into a private hotel, as Washington Parks is considering, would violate this last chance to leave our children and grandchildren a priceless legacy.

Support for saving our park is surging, with over 1,600 e-signatures on the petition, Change.Org Save St. Edward, to keep the park completely public and preserved, for park and non-profit use only and restore, partially restore or return the building to open space, as a graceful monument.

Carefully limited to the North Wing to strictly protect the park’s tranquility, a non-profit like the successful Centrum, Daybreak Star, El Centro de la Raza or Youngstown Cultural Arts can provide funds and serve the community and the needy – instead of further enriching the privileged.

Please raise your voice at two huge meetings:the first at 9 a.m. on Jan. 28 at Edmonds Community College, and at 5 p.m. on Feb. 9 at Kenmore City Hall. Defend your legacy, defend Saint Edward.

Joe Marshall, Kenmore
