In 2007, two 55-plus mobile home parks were sold by the owner, leaving the homeowners on the brink of homelessness. Save Our Seniors, an original grass-roots group of senior citizens in south Snohomish County, faced the second challenge of finding $9 million to buy back the park from the developer — forced by seniors picketing Lynnwood city hall — to sell it back to the tenants.
After contacting the Snohomish County Housing Authority, which decided to buy the park, we agreed to help seek funding. I have decided early on to seek the help of local elected bipartisan legislators and County Council members. Brian Sullivan and Hans Dunshee came into the fold.
Hans’ dedication to help the fight facing the seniors in Snohomish County came to focus. His lengthy experience in budgeting at the state level, plus the collegial and professionalism he demonstrates in his work in Snohomish and Olympia, makes him the living hero we call our own Paul Bunyan. Thanks, Hans!
Please re-elect Hans Dunshee, our experienced legislator to Snohomish County senior citizens.
