A recent letter to the editor accused Mayor John Kartak of poor leadership. In my opinion, the mayors showing poor leadership are the mayors of Seattle and Portland, who allow rioters to rule the streets. Perhaps she thinks that situation is preferable.
On May 31, there was a credible threat that antifa would riot in Snohomish and Tulalip. They were apparently unwilling to step into a buzzsaw by causing trouble in Snohomish. That was a wise decision.
Since then, a cadre of obviously organized partisans have waged a relentless attack against the people and mayor of Snohomish. Most seem to be school activist teachers or their students. Others are part of a couple in town who try and get businesses downtown to take down Kartak signs.
These misguided people are trying to divide the town by accusing the entire population of racism. They are only uniting us in contempt.
