LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Former Seattle mayor’s new home isn’t so nice

  • Mar 29, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, It took me awhile to finally get up the nerve to drive down to the Langley dock/marina and view what Paul Schell is building. What a monstrosity, to say the least. It has spoiled the whole terrain of that beautiful lagoon and beach. How can he or the city planner justify or approve this type of structure? Can anyone explain the reason it took two years for my neighbor to get questions answered and permits (which were all required by the city) before they could put in a parking strip for their business (mandatory request by the city)? What does Paul Schell have that so many of our other citizens don’t in obtaining architectural design approval, permits, etc. so quickly? Money?

LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Lawmakers droned on about accomplishments

  • Mar 30, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, We attended the Town Hall meeting of our three Republican state legislators in Langley last week on Thursday. It was a waste of our time. The legislators droned on for a total of 60 minutes painting a rosy picture of all their numerous, bipartisan accomplishments. During the last two legislative sessions, there was virtually nothing accomplished on a bipartisan basis in the state Legislature, dealing with taxes, transportation, wages, health care, worker rights, unions, government transparency, and even education — there was no bipartisanship shown by our three legislators or any other Republican in Olympia.

EDITORIAL | Board creation was the right, ethical choice

  • Apr 22, 2014 at 4:00PM

The right decision isn’t always clear. The road can be fogged with circumstance and variables that make things seem more complicated, or more simple, than they really are. That’s why the Langley City Council’s vote to reinstate a standing ethics board earlier this month was so important. City leaders such as the mayor, who oversees employees at City Hall, should not be tasked with vetting claims of improper or dishonest action against himself or his staff. That job is best left to a third-party group not involved in the daily affairs of Langley government.
