Do we have our priorities straight?
The proposed levy-without-a-vote for parks and whatnot in Edmonds would raise more than $2 million a year. I was recently struck by an article in the Seattle Times at http://seattletimes.com/html/nationworld/2022957636_microhousingxml.html.
In Olympia, a city not much larger than Edmonds, they have developed a "micro-housing" alternative to tent cities and people sleeping in their cars called Quixote Village.
Hans Dunshee, Democratic chairman of the Washington State House Capital Budget Committee, said that, "I don’t think there’s any political value in this. You wake up feeling, I did something decent.”
We could feel that way, too.
