Trouble in Lynnwood
There is a housing crisis in Lynnwood. Whispering Pines is a Housing Authority of Snohomish County (HASCO) apartment complex of 240 units that will be torn down in September and must be vacated by August 31. The most recent information is that 70 units are still occupied. There are now 6 weeks to find housing for these folks at a time when waiting lists for these types of apartments are measured in years not weeks or months. Unless things change dramatically the City will be faced with a massive wave of residents who will be on our streets or living in their cars. It is time for the County, the City and our faith community to work together to prevent this crisis. Four times in the last two years I have asked the City Council to pass a Displaced Low-income Tenant Ordinance and have been turned down. The present administration and Council have stood by and have ignored the tenants of Whispering Pines. As your Mayor, I will make sure that you will have a City government that serves all our residents with respect and compassion.
