  1. It is nice to see new names in the City Government. What I find most disappointing is that in a city of 33,000, less than 4000 ballots were returned.

  2. rod – isn’t that the truth — apathy in lynnwood has caused so much to go ‘un-noticed’ and un-told — i have been stifled every meeting i have gone to during the citizen comment period – there is no free speech in lynnwood IMHO — i am so happy for the change in the tp desk — perhaps Nicola will be able to make changes — thrilled for ruth ross, as well!!!
    perhaps she will be able to give some life and development in her new employment – she rally needs to talk to Tina Roberts-Martinez if she needs a role model for running lynnwood in an honorable way — might be a culture shock for so many????
