Keep firefighters on duty, support King County Fire District 28 levy | Letter
For slightly more than $5 a month we can keep our local fire department staffed and protecting our community and our children with four firefighters on duty 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year.
That’s right, for a mere $5.17 per month ($62 per year on a $200,000 home) we have the opportunity to keep our community safe with enough firefighters on duty to respond quickly and rescue your child from your burning home or perform life-saving CPR to your elderly neighbor. This is only possible if we join together as a community and vote “yes” on the Fire District 28 levy lid lift. If we fail as a community to properly staff our fire department we will put our children and elderly neighbors at risk unnecessarily.
Reductions in the number of Enumclaw firefighters will cost much more than $5 a month in the costs to our lives and property with increased response times and possible closed stations. Let’s all do our part to keep our children safe and vote “yes” on the KCFD 28 lid lift.
This is Part 2 of a three part in-paper Enumclaw mayoral debate between Jan Molinaro and Kim Lauk. Both are first time candidates for mayor. The incumbent, Mayor Liz Reynolds, chose not to seek a third term.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise across the U.S. and Washington and King County data show a similar trend towards more syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.
Bills show hundreds of residents doubled or tripled their water usage in the past two months, but many say they’ve not increased, or even decreased, their water consumption, and the city’s system must be wrong.
The Courier-Herald is publishing a three-part debate between Black Diamond Mayor Carol Benson and her opponent Judy Baxley. Last week, candidates answered questions concerning the city, and what they would do as mayor to address any issues. This week, Part 2, is a chance for candidates to rebut their opponent’s statements. Part 3 will wrap-up with final statements.
