I am not against the Second Amendment. But I completely disagree with the Lake Stevens letter writer who praised Snohomish Mayor John Kartak, who allowed and encouraged men in tactical gear with hate group insignia, carrying military-style rifles while drunk, to “protect” the city from an imaginary threat of violence.
In reality they intimidated and yelled racial slurs at people that were peacefully protesting the awful death of George Floyd. One teenage boy was even punched in the face!
One after another, citizens, some crying, packed the City Council meeting expressing their disgust and terror at what went on.
They called for Mayor John Kartak to resign.
This is in response to his lack of leadership as mayor.
He certainly is not qualified to run for state representative in the 44th Legislative District, against the honorable state Rep. John Lovick.
