Congressman Rick Larsen called Mayor Ray Stephanson a “strong supporter of public safety” while introducing him at Wednesday’s State of the City address.
Mayor Ray stated he “was able to weather the storm (recession) without any major layoffs or cuts to services.” Perhaps Mayor Stephanson forgot about his administration removing three Everett Fire Department units from service in 2010, including both aid cars, while simultaneously raising the levy intended to improve EMS service in Everett. Doing so has left the most vulnerable citizens of Everett at significant risk.
Please restore the service we have been paying for since 2010. Otherwise, I feel a refund is in order.
