BOTHELL—The celebration is in full swing. While it’s not official quite yet, the providers and members of the Northshore Senior and Health and Wellness Centers are ecstatic as it appears voters have approved Proposition 1 M&O Levy that allows an increase to property taxes to fund the essential upkeep of the centers.
The Northshore Senior Center shared the following statement.
“Another day of ballots counted, and it looks official! The levy funding capital repairs at the Senior Center has passed! A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make this possible!
“A special appreciation to campaign co-chairs Rosemary and Jim McAuliffe for their tireless work and advocacy, and to the elected officials who serve on the Northshore Parks and Recreation Service Area. And of course, thank you to all the volunteers who made phone calls, knocked on doors, handed out flyers, tabled at events, put up signs and so much more. Together, in partnership with the voters, we made a huge difference in the lives of seniors and people with disabilities in our community.”
A 60% majority vote was needed for the levy to pass, and as it sits now, 70.36% of the voters said YES.
While CEO of the Northshore Senior Center Brooke Knight is jubilant over the expected passage of the M&O Levy, she knows this is just the beginning.
“Now on to the hard work of implementing,” she said.
Election results are certified by each county on Nov. 26, 2019. The Secretary of State certifies final results on Dec. 5. The results posted before certification are unofficial.
