People need someone to listen. As I listen to people, I hear their concerns about safety in their neighborhoods. A mom pulling weeds with her toddler told me that she doesn’t like to see druggies shooting up in public. She wants someone to stop the negative impact of drug abuse and crime in our county. Those are not partisan issues; they’re our challenge to overcome as leaders work together in Snohomish County.
Another woman told me that she’s not about to vote for any Republican because of some of Trump’s policies. I stood on her doorstep and listened for several minutes before she took a breath. Then I agreed that some of the national level politics seem uncivil. I sure hope we don’t do that on a local level when it comes to Snohomish County leadership. It is far more effective if we learn to resolve the issues together. Her demeanor changed and she seemed to relax and look at me as a person, not a political party, for the first time.
Who will listen?
Anna Rohrbough is listening. She puts people over politics. She’s been listening to the citizens of Mukilteo for years as a city councilmember and now she wants to hear from other folks in Snohomish County. Please consider a vote for Anna for Snohomish County Council District 2 on your primary ballot.
