Mukilteo city council’s vote correct on city government

On May 20, four Mukilteo City Council members voted in favor of changing the city government (“Mayor or manager? Mukilteo voters will decide in November,” The Herald, May 21). I applaud Scott Whelpley for bringing this motion up. Change is a difficult topic anytime in government, and I am sure many sleepless nights went into this consideration for Council president Christine Cook, vice president Anna Rohrbough and councilmember Steve Schmalz.

It takes courage to suggest and create change and we are very fortunate to have these iindividuals on the city council. Please join me in thanking them.

I fell they are the best of the best, not only in our city but the entire county.

I am inspired as they cotinue to put the city’s best interests forward
