DEMOCRACY AT HOME

Do you agree that the freedoms and democracy we enjoy in our Woodinville community are worth a little of your time and focus and a 49-cent stamp?

If so, then remember we have an important, off-year, non-partisan election on November 7.

Education, health, community services and vision are at stake in four elections – Northshore School Board, Evergreen Health Hospital District, Woodinville Water District and, most importantly, four positions on the seven-member Woodinville City Council.

Question: Are you registered to vote to elect leadership for these government agencies, all of which have a lot to do with the quality of life we enjoy today?

If not, get with it. The deadline for registering is 30 days prior to election day on November 7. That would make October 9 the last day to register or change your registration address.

You can register online, in the mail, or in person. Just search the web for the Elections offices of Snohomish or King counties.

To participate: Register. Look for your voter’s pamphlet in your mailbox. Make sure your mail ballot has a 49-cent postage stamp and get it in the mail on or prior to November 7.

NORTHSHORE SCHOOL BOARD
 
I would like to strongly support Amy Cast as a candidate for the Northshore School Board. I have known Amy personally and professionally for over 10 years and in that time, I have found her to be a principled and passionate supporter of school excellence in Northshore. She is diligent in listening to her constituents and works hard to ensure each and every child gets a good education. Amy is willing to take a stand for what is right and she has represented the Northshore School Board in the past with integrity and action orientation. Our school district is fortunate to have such a strong candidate up for consideration. Amy Cast will represent this school district well and ensure that the Northshore legacy of quality continues for many years to come.
