44th LD, House, Pos. 1: Even Kartak has thanked Lovick


Since I have worked in Snohomish and my workout gym is currently there, I follow the city news.

I watched the Snohomish City Council Meeting on Zoom to continue following the fallout from Mayor John Kartak’s weird leadership in allowing armed, drunk vigilantes to overrun Snohomish and harass high school students at a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest.

After the protest talk, Kartak proceeded to go on a meandering rant, which included thanking Sen. Steve Hobbs, Rep. Jared Mead and Rep. John Lovick who Kartak is running against in this election! Kartak truthfully admitted that these local leaders were critical in “bringing a big chunk of our tax dollars back to the city” and ensuring Snohomish taxpayer dollars are used to help Snohomish families and businesses.

If Mayor Kartak can’t even govern his own city, there is no way he can run the entire legislative district in which I live! Lovick is the one bringing home the bacon for all of us, and even Kartak acknowledges his hard work and success on our behalf. Lovick deserves our vote.
