The County Council must focus on our growth, including transit-oriented development that will improve traffic and reduce pollution in our community, and managing growth so our government agencies can operate cost-effectively to keep taxes low.
As Chair of the Law & Justice and Human Service Committee on the Snohomish County Council, I know there are important changes we must make in public safety to protect our neighbors, and those whose voices have been silenced for too long. If one thing has been illuminated by those voices, it is that our system does not work for everyone. A system that does not work for everyone, works for no one. We must rethink policing and face those realities in policy.
