Senator's nay on two-thirds tax majority overrides voters

  • Apr 9, 2014 at 3:30PM

You assume your vote counts. It appears that State Senator Mark Mullet has a very different opinion. Almost 70 percent of us within the 5th Legislative District chose to have a two-thirds majority (vote) of the legislature required to raise taxes. Mullet voted ‘Nay’ against this bill (Senate Joint Resolution 8213) the other week. Our local community decided, but Mullet overrode the citizens.

Mullet: Confident with record as a moderate

  • Apr 9, 2014 at 3:28PM

I wanted to respond to questions about my vote against placing a two-thirds vote threshold for tax changes in our state constitution. During my time on the Issaquah City Council, I never once voted to increase property taxes. Last year, I was one of the few Democrats who broke from party leadership to support a Republican budget that reduced the business and occupations tax on the service industry. I have a long history of opposing tax increases at the state and local level.

North Bend’s busy sewer plant nears limits

  • Apr 9, 2014 at 4:00PM

North Bend is growing, with the potential for 655 new homes in the next few years, based on building project applications in progress at the city’s planning department. However, its aging sewer system may not be up to future demands. The city’s 60-year-old wastewater treatment plant is permitted by the Environmental Protection Agency to handle 2.58 million gallons of wastewater per day, but because of a “pinch point” in the system, “the functional limit is 1 million gallons,” City Administrator Londi Lindell told the Record, recapping the information from a March 25 council work session on the issue.

Is Fall City ready for drag queens? Divas surprise at twice-monthly show | Photo Gallery

  • Apr 15, 2014 at 4:31PM

From the neck down, the look was casual, sweats in fact. On top, though, it was all glam and sparkles, with long false eyelashes and a foot-high blonde wig. The martini-swirling phenomenon underneath it all was making the look work, while simultaneously working the Fall City Bistro on a Sunday evening in February. “Good morning!” Akasha Manila greeted the guests trickling in for dinner, “good to see you! I just woke up!” Manila’s sleepy claim fit perfectly with the “Divas” theme of the night’s show. It probably wasn’t true though, because this particular diva, like his fellow performers, was already made-up for her appearance in the semimonthly “Night Queens” drag show at the bistro, and doing makeup takes a while.
