This past fall, both Sammamish and Issaquah were meeting in council and talking to the community regarding their positions on annexation of the whole of the Klahanie PAA. The Issaquah City Council made a promise to release the PAA to Sammamish if the Annexation vote in February were "no." Well, the residents of the PAA have voted, and the vote was "no." The democratic process is complete.
Community Events, March 2014
I wish to express my deepest apology to the citizens of Issaquah for the recent reprehensible behavior of the Sammamish City Council that would financially affect the annexation of Klahanie to Issaquah.
If Senator Mullet continues to ignore our voice, we'll need to resort to changing those things we can vote on including who the next state senator will be.
I am both disappointed and mystified (but not surprised) that the Reporter has not seen fit to question the actions or at least the ethics of both the city of Sammamish and the King County Police Officers Guild in the Klahanie Annexation campaign.
I grew up with lots of family members who were teachers, so I’m usually supportive of school issues, but this year the Lake Washington School District is asking local families for an excessive tax increase. Here we are five years into a recession and they propose a 30 percent increase in the capitol improvements levy (Proposition 2).
