Proposition 1 supporters hosting two events next week


The YES for MLT committee is sponsoring two events next week, a fundraising dinner with live music, and a presentation of Civic Center 101.

“A Mountlake Terrace St. Patrick’s Day Bash” is scheduled for Friday, March 15, 6 p.m. at the Nile Shriners Golf Course, 6601-244th St. S.W in Mountlake Terrace. Tickets are $15; tickets for youth 13-years-old and younger are $7.50. The event features a corned beef and cabbage dinner, a cash bar, and live music from the MTHS jazz combo and the 44th St. Blues Band.

With Proposition 1 on the upcoming April 23 ballot, the dinner represents a chance for the YES for MLT committee to replenish their coffers for a campaign push in support of the municipal bond measure. A portion of the event’s ticket sales will go to the committee’s political fund; the group has spent $1673 of the $1,754.42 they have raised so far, according to records with the state’s Public Disclosure Commission.

The YES for MLT committee is hosting a presentation of Civic Center 101 at the Lake Ballinger Clubhouse, 23000 Lakeview Dr., on Tuesday, March 12, beginning at 7 p.m. City Manager John Caulfield and Police Chief Greg Wilson have been invited to present the city’s history, hopes and plans for a new civic center consisting of a new city hall, a remodeled and expanded police station, an updated library and a connecting green space at 232nd Street Southwest and 58th Avenue West. The free event will include an opportunity to ask questions and enjoy some light refreshments.

Civic Center 101 is also set to be presented on Monday, March 11, as part of the city’s regularly scheduled Planning Commission meeting at 7 p.m. at interim City Hall, 6100-219th St. S.W., Suite 200.








  1. Is anyone else curious how much the “Yes for MLT committee” is paying to rent the Lake Ballinger Club house for their presentation.

  2. The ‘sheep’ committee loves to gather at the trough for despite their desire for the center that’s too expensive and unnecessary it’s a way to gather and celebrate that they’re participating in a ritual of time immemorial where a fool and their money are soon parted by virtue of them supporting prop. 1. If they truly cared about the city, they would elect those that are accountable ‘to the people they serve’ with ‘the money they take’ instead of supporting a council that recklessly tore down the former city hall because they wanted to and then want the citizens to pay for their mistake. It’s apparent by those in charge that it’s not about doing what’s right, it’s about shoving something down the peoples throats regardless of their repeated objections because they arrogantly believe they know what’s best. If I used that same logic and could rely on stealing…I mean extorting my neighbors every time my vehicle, home or belongings were damaged in any way so I could always have what I want, instead of what I need, then I would be following the lead of the councils corruption. If the people do not understand the rape and pillage efforts by the city council, then they deserve what they get in spades. Frankly the whole lot should be thrown out on their ears and learn to earn an honorable living without imposing their impossibly exorbitant ‘wishes’ upon those picking up the tabs due to their misguided and out of control power.
