I’m very frustrated in hearing how Everett mayoral candidates Cassie Franklin and Judy Tuohy support the citizens of Everett.
Let’s ask the neighbors of the Pinehurst-Beverly Park Neighborhood if they feel that they were supported? They were deceived, misinformed and disregarded when it came to the low-barrier housing being built in their neighborhood after many neighbors called, wrote and showed up at city council meetings to get help to stop this from being forced into their neighborhood.
The Everett City Council unanimously approved the low-barrier housing against the citizens and neighbors’ wishes. Cassie Franklin and Judy Tuohy with the other council members never supported this neighborhood. Both these mayoral candidates want to carry on Mayor Ray Stephenson’s plan that included deceiving and misinforming the citizens of the south Everett neighborhoods.
It is time for change from the mayor to the city council. South Everett citizens need to stand up and vote for change with districting for the council and a new mayor that cares about the south end of Everett.
