Roz Gorc is one of us. She is a mom, a volunteer and someone who has spent her whole life around Bothell.
There has been a lot of controversy in Bothell over the past two years. But there are also a lot of good things happening.
Many citizens have voiced a desire for the city to focus on parks, sidewalks, public safety, traffic issues and preserving open spaces, while at the same time completing the downtown revitalization.
I would just like to say that Robert Tadlock’s letter to the editor regarding Roz Gorc could not be more misleading and dishonest.
I have known Roz Gorc for some time now and she is someone of great character, creativity and ability. The current atmosphere on our [Bothell] City Council is divisive and toxic; we need a fresh voice who will bring much-needed change.
Tim Ottersburg a clear choice for City Council. He is an involved community member who will bring independence and integrity to the council. Bothell citizens are sick of insiders with conflicts of interest.
In a recent news article, Andy Rheaume's opponent characterized that he had a history of being on the losing end of 5-2 votes as a reason that she would be more qualified.
The attempt to paint Roz Gorc as anything other than a potential City Council insider is dangerous. Be a smart voter, and do your homework concerning her personal affiliations. Just look at the City Council videos, and you will see Ms. Gorc defending the mayor in his infamous attempt to develop the Wayne Golf Course.
Responsible growth: Tim Ottersburg says to ensure responsible growth, and as quoted on his website, to “secure land for green spaces and parks while we still can.”
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.
