Tolbert for Arlington Mayor | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

A turn of fate made us residents of Marysville and not Arlington. The annexation in 1997 eliminated our neighborhood from the approved boundary.

A turn of fate made us residents of Marysville and not Arlington. The annexation in 1997 eliminated our neighborhood from the approved boundary.

Decisions made by the elected some years back left Smokey Point in two cities, Arlington and Marysville. Many residents and business people in the area feel the current leaders are still struggling with how to unite the areas of old town Arlington and Smokey Point, Arlington.

We see an opportunity opening up to accomplish just that. It will be with the voters’ choice in the race for Arlington’s Mayor this fall. As business people in Arlington we support Barbara Tolbert for Mayor. Fresh ideas on economic growth and unification of all communities of Arlington need to be nurtured. The city is so much more than Olympic Avenue.

Barbara Tolbert demonstrates her ability to unite people as the director of the Fly-In, a volunteer structure that pulls off a very large yearly event. From our vantage point she is what is needed at this time. Put Barbara Tolbert in the office of Mayor. She is intelligent, knowledgeable and articulate. All Arlington citizens will be proud to have her as their representative and voice of the city.
