Snohomish Mayoral Race
Kartak will uphold traditions

To the Editor:
The upcoming mayoral race in Snohomish offers new and effective, local leadership. The success of Proposition 2, and the failure of the MPD initiative (raising already high property taxes) was a clear indication the existing administration is out of step with the people of Snohomish.
Councilwoman Karen Guzak was a feel-good appointee on council which didn’t pan out for many reasons including numerous ill-advised spending initiatives. The champion of the people, John Kartak, is a local man whose ambition is to reinvigorate citizens in a collective effort to maintain the city’s charm. He promises to keep our city from becoming another densely-packed, strip mall town, by supporting local businesses and inviting citizen involvement. John is not a tax-and-spend bureaucrat, but rather a hands-on advocate, with applicable skills who will utilize our assets prudently, contain the cost of governing, improve transparency, and thwart aggressive expansion. John will be a full-time, strong mayor, dedicated to the job 24/7. I’m an independent who caucuses democratic.
