I met Marcia Korich-Vega for the first time at a meeting regarding a
proposed new development called “Falls Crossing.”
Some citizens had formed a group opposing this project. One of the
reasons for the opposition was that Puget Western wanted to move the
power lines to the bottom of the hill, right behind the Northern Street
neighborhood. I did not think that this was a fair deal for the neighborhood, so
I joined the group.
We went door to door and informed citizens about the
situation. During this process, we went to city council meetings and planning
commission meetings. Eventually, the planning commission voted
against Falls Crossing and made them go back to the drawing boards.
Marcia became so interested in city government that a year ago she
applied for a city council position, and she is running this November. Marcia is
very knowledgeable on flood issues, traffic, shoreline management,
growth and shoreline issues.
She is a working mom who wants Snoqualmie to continue to be a
great place for present and future generations.
