Given her years of community work and involvement, she’s already proven her diligence and dedication to making Bothell a special place to live. As an architect, she’s been an invaluable ten-year member of Bothell’s Landmark Preservation Board and has been chairperson since 2008.
After long careers in city management and the fire service, we moved to Bothell. Sadly since locating here we have watched reports of Bothell City Councilmembers being involved in shameful scandals, defying state regulations, and placing the financial interest of developers and themselves above that of the community-at-large.
There are problems with the I-405 HOT lanes. The limited entry and exit points make commuting worse.
Why is the new Bothell City Hall so ugly? It looks like a hospital building straight out of the '50s.
This is a follow up to a previous letter I recently read.
When I was young and found reasons to complain about life, my cowboy father-in-law would say, simply, "If you survive this you're going to grow old." Now I'm old, he's gone and I've grown older in the clutches of our city subarea, unable to sell our land.
Your article on Bothell’s new City Hall overlooked an important fact. The city will pay 24 years of lease payments, which will start at $3.1 million a year and end at $3.3 million a year in 2039.
I recently moved to Kenmore to live with my daughter and her family. I love my new community. It is a friendly place, and I hope to become part of my granddaughter's school community as a grandparent volunteer. This really is a great place to live.
I want to thank you for your recent campaign contribution $18.81. I read your brief letter of explanation and I very much appreciate your contribution to my campaign.
It was a relief to read [Northshore School District] Superintendent [Larry] Francois' update of the NSD's priorities, many of which the district has been aware of for the past ten years. These issues consume both psychological and economic tolls on the community, students and employees in the district.
Why am I running for school board? That question is one that is often asked.
A vote for Roz Gorc is a vote in a positive direction for the city of Bothell. We need a councilwoman who is optimistic about our new downtown, who is solution-focused and concerned with the divisive politics on the council.
It has been brought to my attention that my signs have very recently been removed from parts of the Woodinville area, including signs that were on private property. Interestingly, I have been informed that my opponent's signs remain untouched.
Yesterday, Sept. 2, was the first day of school for Northshore School District. I was walking to get my three children from Woodmoor Elementary around 3:20 p.m., as I do every school day.
The last few days have been trying for many in our region: loss of life and property due to the Great Windstorm of 2015 puts everything into perspective. Hats off to the workers in the field who, like the clients they serve, made do with less-than-ideal circumstances.
RIP: Mia Roma 1973-2015. As of Sunday night, the doors closed forever at Mia Roma in Kenmore. The owner abruptly sold the business to a group of investors to eventually make it an upscale restaurant-nightclub. It will reopen some day with a new name. A new chapter for Kenmore.
I have known John Hammond as a co-worker for more than three years.
The story about the strange behavior of the Hispanic burglar might have made more sense if the reporter had asked and then made clear whether Naranjo-Meija was an illegal immigrant.
Roz [Gorc] has lived in Bothell her entire life and attended council meetings as a young girl with her father because she has always cared so much about this community.
After having questioning the candidates for Northshore School Board and determining their position on the issue of later start times, the endorsement committee representing Parent Advocates for a Late Start (PALS) is endorsing Ken Smith, candidate for Northshore School Board position 2.
