Bothell annexation: What part of 'no' doesn't city get?
Regarding the Feb. 27 article, " Bothell still wants to grow ": How many times do citizens need to reject annexation before the city of Bothell understands that we do not wish to be annexed to Bothell?

What is more insulting is that the local fire district seems to be the only ones against this annexation.
I'm not saying the citzens should vote for or against the annexation.
But I am saying that it is none of the firemen's business, unless they live in the district. When $22000 of the $22970 collected by the Vote No group comes from two fire district Unions, then the citizens need to know the facts behind this election.
Clearly, it is the fire districts desires over those of the citizens. Time for Firement to butt out and let the citizen's vote based on the real facts.

The fire district really is the one that refuses to talk. Mostly fire district 1. Fire districts 7 and 10 were on board but fire district 7 has since walked away under pressure from district 1. Fire district 1 wants to merge with 7 which would raise property taxes in 7 without a vote. After annexation passes, FD1 will have no choice but to talk.
