We had a great meeting last night, hearing from our elected officials and others.

Derek Stanford, LD Representative
Shelley Kloba, LD Representative
Jackie McGourty, Northshore School District Board
Terry Ryan, Snohomish County Council

We also had great presentations from Adam Cornell, incoming Snohomish County Prosecutor, and Sara Papanikoloau and Jeanine on the proposed Snohomish County Pipeline Expansion by PSE.

Finally, we passed two resolutions, one to increase the sales age of tobacco products from 18 to 21, and the other to protect and preserve the Shelton View Forest.

I wanted to give a big thank-you to our outgoing Executive Board. They have done an excellent job this year helping our organization run smoothly. I could not have done it without them!

I’m sure we’ll see many of these folks running again, but we encourage all of you to consider running for a position for the upcoming biennium (2019-2020). Now is your chance to help shape the party during the 2020 presidential elections!

The meeting ran late, so we had little time for Good of the Order. I promised to do a follow-up e-mail with any Good of the Order items that were missed as a result.

First District member Tyler Kelson wanted to announce that he and his dad are offering to put up lights for neighbors within the Northshore School District boundaries (roughly). You need to provide the lights. If you have a ladder, they can be done on weekdays; otherwise, it will be done on a weekend. Preference goes to 1-2 story homes. Can do as much or as little as is desired. Can do lights in shrubs and trees or around the roof line (depending on height). They are charging only $25/person/hour.

They are available: for single story homes that own a ladder, weekdays; for all multi-level homes or anyone that doesn’t have a ladder, weekends. A picture of a sample of their work is at the end of the e-mail.
