By Shoreline Mayor Chris Roberts
As a Council we are committed to providing efficient, effective services for Shoreline residents and businesses. It is a goal of the Council to increase funding for human services, to ease congestion on Richmond Beach Road, near Shoreline Community College, and on 185th. With the passage of ST3, Shoreline will see a rebuilt 145th Street between Bothell Way and I-5. I am excited about the future of our City.
I am committed to preserving the values and vision that we share and cherish. The vision of the City is “a thriving, friendly city where people of all ages, cultures, and economic backgrounds love to live, work, and play, and most of all, call home.”
We are a community where one of our greatest strengths is its diversity. We must continue to show respect for people of all cultures and backgrounds. We must continue to stand up against bullying and discrimination, wherever it may occur.
We are a community where one of our greatest strengths is the care and compassion we share with one another. We must remain committed to ensuring that all Shoreline residents feel welcomed, loved, and safe. We must comfort those in our community that may be hurting or scared.
We are a community where one of our greatest strengths is our commitment to equity and equality. We must continue to confront injustice and support efforts that provides people greater security and opportunities to fulfill their pursuit of happiness.
I am confident that our City will remain dedicated to our ideas and an advocate for the values we share and a champion for the people of our community.
