Its gut check time
Its that time again already. Monday, June 1, opened the five-day filing period for those wishing to run for office in the upcoming election.
This year, our mayors seat and three council positions are up for grabs, as well as two spots on the school board and a seat on the board of the Mukilteo Water and Wastewater District.
Further out from our borders but also impacting our lives are two open slots on the Fire District 1 commission, three County Council slots and a seat on the Port of Everett commission.
All too often, our politicians operate in a vacuum. Theres rarely anyone at council, commission and board meetings unless a particularly hot topic is on the agenda.
And even then, the room returns to its customary ghost town status as soon as that issue is settled or at least tabled until the next meeting.
