Here is who we have to choose from in this November’s Election:
The candidates featured in this series are ones I have run a full background check on, and that I have investigated to the fullest of my ability. The one’s that I have endorsed are in bold letters. If neither candidate is in bold letters that means I can not find any good reason to endorse either of them.
I hope that you will also take the time to investigate and communicate with these people on your own as well. Don’t just take my word (or my opinion) for it.
You will also notice that I have not only crossed “party lines”, I have zig-zagged across them. I am not concerned about parties I am only interested in who has the citizens best interests at heart
You may also notice that some of the newer candidates have a “past” or may have had financial difficulties. As odd as this sounds those are the people we need in office. The people like 98% of the rest of us.
People who have never had to chose whether to buy medication or pay a power bill are so far out of touch with our reality that they have no business making any decisions for any of us.
Some have a criminal history. I have reviewed all of them, and all have been dismissed. The most important thing is that they were vindicated and didn’t use their political power to “get out of it” they fought for the truth and took their lumps so to speak.
City of Everett Council Position 3
Jennifer A. Hesse 3,127 24.31%
Is a teacher, she has lived here for some years and seems to only have a grasp of a very few of the issues facing the city, but they are core issues. The best news is that she has not taken any donations so she will not be compelled to go the way her contributors say she “should” I think that if her and Cassie Franklin work together we may actually get something done for our schools, housing and community needs. She is also an advocate of redistricting, to ensure all Everett neighborhoods have representation. As of now only one council member lives out of the North Everett area.
Scott D. Murphy 7,770 60.40%
I have not found anything overly negative about Mr Murphy, other then the fact that he was thrown into the ring by a seat made vacant by a death and of course – there he stayed. He has the backing of everyone we need to get out of office and a look at his endorsements prove that.
