"I still think we have the better location if you are comparing where you want to be 50 years from now."
-- Marysville Mayor Dennis Kendall

"We tried to look at this academic vision as a centerpiece of not only what is needed in the three-county region, but meets the need of the state … We do imagine, ideally, this would be a campus that would have such a distinction."
-- Former UW President Lee Hunstman, who has led the academic planning for the Snohomish County campus

"I believe we will all come together around a preferred site because we need to be united if we are going to be successful."
-- Everett Mayor Ray Stephanson

"This is the closest we've ever been and if we can come together we can bring this on home."
-- Gov. Chris Gregoire

"Regardless of where it is in Marysville, Everett or Lake Stevens, we've got to come up with the money."
-- Sen. Steve Hobbs, D-Lake Stevens
"We are more concerned about the programs they offer than where it is sited. Our conversation has been how can we complement things rather than how we would compete."
-- Everett Community College President David Beyer

"It's a site I don't think has much room for expansion. We have to build parking garages right away and that's something the Legislature doesn't like to do."
-- Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island

"I want this to be done gracefully. If other legislators see we're just throwing mud at each other, the whole thing could be for naught."
-- Rep. Hans Dunshee, D-Snohomish

"I'd like to avoid the turf battles and do what's best for the students."
-- Sen. Paull Shin, D-Edmonds

"I know that we have a complete system of colleges and universities we have to fund. We have to be sure we can support what we've got."
-- Sen. Rosemary McAuliffe, D-Bothell
