This election will directly affect Bothell’s future and voter turnout is at an all-time low.
Bothell Community is a wonderful Facebook page that brings our city together. Unfortunately, last night (Oct. 22) incumbent City Councilmember Andy Rheaume used this forum to insult Alexa's Cafe owner Leigh Henderson by calling her a liar.
Can we call what is happening in our democracy a crisis yet? In this August primary, only 22 percent of voters bothered to send in their ballots.
Every child is born with unlimited potential. As Executive Director of LifeWire—Washington State’s largest comprehensive domestic violence service agency — I see it in the children who walk through our doors.
I’m voting for Davina Duerr for Bothell City Council. When I compare the candidates side-by-side, it’s very clear she is the right choice at this point in time for Bothell. We need a demonstrated leader.
Roz Gorc will be an amazing representative for all citizens on Bothell City Council. Citizens proudly support Roz who have heard her clear, independent message; understand her relentless commitment to public safety; and most importantly are not caught up in the empty rhetoric spewed by negative homeowners’ association members.
The Northshore School District’s Junior High Challenge Program is a self-select honors program in which students elect to work at a faster pace and are challenged with in-depth material. The district is planning to remove this highly regarded program despite more than 1,100 signatures of support on the Save Our Challenge petition.
I am writing to support Ken Smith and Berta Phillips for Northshore School Board.
I've seen the inside of Kenmore politics and I think we can do better. I've walked out of two City Council meetings in public spectacle but never gave up hope in the process.
I am supporting Ken Smith for NSD [Northshore School District] school board because he is smart, honest, listens and wants our district to succeed.
One in 50 - those are roughly the odds that a ballot returned to King County Elections will not be counted.
Hello all. I , Leigh Henderson owner of Alexa's Cafe on Main Street want to publicly endorse three candidates for our Bothell City Council race.
If the world was blind, how many people would you impress? Sometimes I did wish everyone in the world was blind. I know what you all are thinking. “Why in the world would you want everyone to be blind?”
Having read some of the negative letters that have been published here, I feel I must tell what I know of Ken Smith, Northshore school board candidate. I believe your readers deserve to know more about my experience with his clear devotion to serving our community's kids and their families.
If you thought Roz Gorc is against insiders and good-ol' boy politics, note that the “insider” she opposes has voted against the lavish city hall, voted again relaxation of important environmental protections, and voted against packing the Bothell Planning Commission with developers. Rather Roz Gorc is asking you to add her to the insider good ol boy developer city council majority.
With the upcoming Northshore School District (NSD) school board elections, I feel compelled to advocate for change. I've seen, first hand, the damage that has occurred because of the 'challenge' program that went into effect at our junior high schools several years ago.
The true troubling history is with the current majority on City Council and their deep ties to the Master Builders Association Political Action Committee (aka the "Affordable Housing Council") who have made substantial contributions to the Ottersburg, Gorc, Freed, Evans, Spivey and Lamb campaigns.
In the Seattle Times article (7/17/15) James McNeal’s opponent criticized him for opposing the city’s so-called “Parks and Public Spaces” bond levy last November, claiming that its failure to pass “crippled the city’s ability to buy open space.”
The race for Bothell City Council is about one thing and one thing only - land development in Bothell and who makes the most money off of it.
The commitment and quality of Northshore’s teachers is why Northshore is one of the top school districts in our state. Northshore’s teachers want to keep Northshore a great place to raise our families. We encourage you to vote for John Hammond and David Cogan for the Northshore School Board. They will be strong advocates for our community and schools.
