Regarding Karen Crowley’s Sept. 5 letter to the editor (“Decision made on Snohomish Carnegie building; move on”), I am baffled by her incoherent statement that Morgan Davis’ Aug. 27 letter (“Wouldn’t it have been greener to keep Snohomish building?”), had nothing to do with the council approved $3 million Carnegie restoration project.
The truth is the city council in 2017 voted to demolish the 1968 Carnegie Annex and plant grass for a pocket park.
Crowley devoted the rest of her letter to make an ad hominem and personal attack on Davis. Instead of presenting a rational argument, she resorted to a rambling smear attack on a citizen who frequently criticizes government’s wasteful spending projects.
Two city council members are up for reelection in 2019. It appears the mud-slinging and character assassinations have already begun with Crowley’s letter.
