I support Mary Fosse for Everett City Council District 1. She is a competent and strong community leader. She is more than qualified and is the voice that District 1 needs. For too long the needs of so many of our neighbors have been ignored by current leadership, from the inequitable roll-out of the Asarco cleanup, to not engaging with and working on behalf of the diverse communities in North Everett in the Delta Neighborhood. More troubling, the current City Council member has consistently failed to engage with minority and low-income families in any substantive way. This is very concerning considering he claims many environmental victories. Those achievements mean nothing if not equitably thought out for their impact to the communities that still need help to this day.
Mary has proven she is up to the task. She lobbied (on her own time and dollar) to secure funding for environmental cleanup for the ignored communities east of Broadway. Mary Fosse has chaired the Delta Neighborhood Association and is, and has been, an active community activist.
It is time to move forward with better representation at our city council. Mary Fosse is the better candidate and will be an excellent City Councilmember. She will listen to the entire community, not just one part of it. Mary Fosse is the right choice for District 1 and the right choice for a better and brighter, more equitable Everett. I hope you will join me in voting for her on Nov. 2.
