I am asking all friends of Mukilteo to take five minutes before 20 January and e-mail the Community Transit Board for the “January 20, 2022 – 4:30 p.m. Snohomish County PTBA Meeting: Board Selection” special meeting. I believe Mayor Joe Marine – who did not solicit this letter to the editor by me – would want me to ask you to please communicate your support for Mukilteo to be represented on the Community Transit Board please.
Community Transit e-mail address to send your emails in support of Joe Marine: firstname.lastname@example.org
First and foremost: Mukilteo is a special community asked to do what no other community is asked to do and that is bear the burdens of hosting Paine Field with the commute and noise impacts. It is important as Community Transit is redesigning its network that Mukilteo is well-represented on the Board, and equally the previous Mayor’s kind letters also be used to remind Community Transit staff of unmet needs for Mukilteo and Paine Field.
Second: I appreciate the current Mayor and Council bringing up the need to connect the Seaway Transit Center better with the Mukilteo Multimodal Terminal in a recent council meeting. I hope this is a top priority as the Future of Flight between those two points has requested transit service for a decade now.
