Thanks to all who voted, exercising your right and privilege as citizens of this great country & city. When the dust settles Mountlake Terrace will still be one community & whichever candidate the majority picks will once again be the representative of all. The current council should take note that a newcomer to local politics who asks for greater openness, honesty, and careful pocketbook spending should do so well.
As a point of information for those confused by Snohomish County naming, the “turnout” continues to grow each time they add more reviewed ballots because it only represents the percentage of reviewed ballots relative to the number sent out. On Tuesday the auditor stated that the expected number of votes is/was 6000. If that prediction holds true, over 2000 votes are yet to be counted.
