After three years of renting, I totaled our rent receipts, and talked to my husband about buying a house. I hated having nothing to show for the rent we paid. We had a child, and had other medical expenses so we had to borrow the $700 down payment on a house in Mountlake Terrace. We moved in March 1952.
I have seen this district become a city. I’ve seen the first fire truck, the first school, the first building that housed the city council, the library and a jail cell. Then we had a real city hall, police department and fire station. We all fought and paid for these necessities. When our city hall collapsed, It was time to build another.
I still hate paying rent. Renting the city hall is costing a fortune. I want to see the New City Hall, I want to honor our Policemen with a decent station. The new community buildings will benefit our youth, young adults and seniors. We will have room for additional activities for all ages.
Please Vote Yes on Proposition 1 on April 23rd.
