Snohomish city vote on ranked-choice voting was rushed

On Feb 26 Snohomish City Council President Linda Redmond brought forth a proclamation using children as a shield to campaign for ranked-choice voting. In an email exchange Redmond stated “As the youth council has no decision-making authority,” if that is true then this council member used these children to shape policy and this proclamation to push HB 1156 on you the citizens of Snohomish.

This was preplanned using the youth council via their teacher to further dismantle your right to vote. It is bad enough these children are being taught to hate themselves, see racism in everything and hate America, they are being lied to, manipulated to believe Marxism is good. You the citizens had no idea five council members who admitted they know nothing of this measure voted yes in support while council members Larry Countryman and Steve Dana said no. Even the City Attorney advised there is no understanding if passed what this law will look like, yet they pushed an agenda.

With no equal time granted to rebut against, this blatantly coerced youth council presentation was simply a read from a website verbatim indicating zero research, this council member pushed an anti-American anti-Constitution political agenda leaving you the citizen being forced to choose from five candidates ranking them from one to five. If you think 2020 elections were rigged, just wait when RCV is forced on you by five Marxists, I mean progressives in our council.
