Citizens’ quality of life has suffered with rapid development | Letter

The quality of life in Snoqualmie has decreased significantly in recent years due to rapid and unnecessary development.

Snoqualmie does not currently have the water rights to support more development, nor the infrastructure to support the development it already has.

Our local IGA and coffee shop were betrayed when a mega grocery was allowed to build across the street.

The current location of the hospital has made our lives less healthy due to the dangerous situation caused by the traffic blockade of the intersection around the Parkway and 96th. The thought of a hotel near the Parkway is unbearable.

We need a mayor who will slow down and listen; a mayor who will put our quality of life before ambition.

Given our experience with Fuzzy Fletcher as Mayor of Snoqualmie, he will be a citizen mayor who listens and responds to residents. He has never sought office out of ambition or self interest, but out of concern for the quality of life in Snoqualmie. He stepped up to run this time because people asked him to do so.

He is trustworthy, even-tempered, and fair. As mayor, he replied to messages from residents 24/7. We always felt heard. If you are concerned about the quality of life in Snoqualmie, bring back Mayor Fletcher.
