I beg to differ with The Herald Editorial Board’s assessment of Jared Mead (“Retain Mead on Snohomish County Council,” The Herald, July 17). District 4 is mostly rural, yet Jared seems to believe his job is to shun and ignore those district residents. All District 4 candidates except Mead toured my neighborhood to hear our issues and concerns. It seem Mead can’t be bothered to learn of his voters’ problems.
Apparently Mead can’t practice social distancing like the other candidates. This shows his disdain and contempt to those voters. We need a responsive, representation on the county council. Mead doesn’t fit that description, he seem to be in over his head and out of his league. Mead would make a fine council aide but not as a Snohomish County council member.
