Blake will help move us forward

Having been a resident of Arlington for 63 years, we have seen a lot of changes. For 33½ years, Betty and I and our family owned and operated Country Charm Dairy. We were fortunate to be adjacent to Arlington city limits. When we started the dairy, Bill Blake’s father was a large factor in making us a viable business. We employed 35 local people.

We have someone, like Bill, to work with at the city to help accomplish our goals.

With our country in such a disarray, this is why it is important that we should elect Bill Blake with real-life proven abilities, not people who do not have the ability to move Snohomish County forward in promoting new business and creating new jobs, and the real management skills to make our county move forward into a prosperous future.

We need to overlook the political parties of this election and elect someone with proven abilities to do an excellent job.

Let’s move Snohomish County forward, elect Bill Blake to the Snohomish County Council.
