Fletcher will listen to citizen concerns as mayor | Letter

I appreciate your excellent coverage of changes in Snoqualmie. I want to encourage everyone to vote for Fuzzy Fletcher for mayor. I am concerned at the lack of responsiveness of the current city government and rampant increase in large projects, and annexations.

I first woke up to these issues when I received a notice of a very large increase in my water bill over the next very few years to pay for future growth. My water bill will be higher than my power bill! Shouldn’t the new developers pay some significant part of this new cost?

Then I found out from a concerned citizen that a hotel would be built across the street from me. I never received the proper notice and when citizens protested, they were told they had no say at that point. Why are we rushing growth and annexations?

Citizens of Snoqualmie, do you really think this growth will improve your daily lives? Traffic on Snoqualmie Parkway will get far worse as annexations dump their users on this only road through our city. These plans make no sense.

Vote for Fuzzy Fletcher. He will listen to us. He will hold public meetings to get our ideas about what we want for our growth. He will respond to our concerns and not shut us down. Fuzzy Fletcher cares about our daily experience, the beauty of the land and the safety of the residents.

Be careful! If we don’t watch city hall, no one else will.
