I am a resident of Mountlake Terrace, lifelong resident of Seattle and Shoreline areas. I am writing in support of our incumbent State Senator Maralyn Chase. This is shared with permission of the author:

"Nobody is perfect, but in his 6 1/2 years on the Shoreline City Council the single largest vote that Jesse Salomon cast was the deciding vote in favor of developers and against the needs of the people of the city. He voted for a massive, extreme up-zoning around (and extending a long distance away from) the coming 185th St. light rail station.

Literally hundreds of citizens showed up to meeting after meeting, and dozens spoke. There was only one Shoreline resident who spoke in favor of it (and she lived safely outside the rezone area). Yet Mr. Salomon chose to ignore them.

The one study done by professionals (BAE Urban Economics) warned explicitly against this type of rezone, yet Mr. Salomon chose to ignore the professional advice.

Why? I don't know for certain, but the only reasonable explanation seems to be that he is highly ambitious and knows where the Big Money comes from when running for higher office.

He is smart and shrewd, but if this is how he wants to represent the people, then we can do better. Vote for Maralyn Chase.

The City of Shoreline is at a pivotal point in its history. Is rapid, high-density population growth beneficial to the typical resident? Is it beneficial for the average homeowner to subsidize rapid multi-family developments? Do we homeowners benefit by paying for all of the public services and infrastructure needed to support the residents of these City-subsidized developments? If you believe that our City Council's policies regarding this type of growth is questionable, you are in good company. Our Council has made decisions to benefit their constituencies. Are we homeowners their constituencies or are their constituencies those who profit from the importation of thousands? Are the winners of this building frenzy the local merchants, developers and absentee land owners? These questions motivate me to attend City Council meetings and planning committee meetings. I hope you will join me.
