In regards to the letter from Philip Bitar (“Cell Phone Towers: Issue needs attention of county, candidates,” Aug. 23): Although I may agree with Mr. Bitar’s plight, he misses a point.
We have more than two candidates for Snohomish County Council District 1. Christopher Laird, who is running in the primary election on Sept. 18 as a Democrat, and Frank Ball, who is running for the Libertarian party, both were not mentioned in the letter.
As I do not know Mr. Ball, I can only comment on Mr. Laird. I think Mr. Bitar has made a mistake in thinking that he is stuck with the two “career” politicians mentioned in his letter, (the ones taking special interest money) and not looking at the ones trying to represent the people.
I think with taxes being raised, Snohomish County council members giving themselves a raise and county employees being laid off, it is time for a change.
Mr. Bitar may want to look into it. (www.votelaird.com)
