Letter: The hypocrisy of Mukilteo for all


October 25, 2017

A group of people sent Mukilteo residents a card with the message of “don’t vote for Peter Zieve”. I am surprised it does not say “no” to a proposition, initiative, or bill. They want us to say “no” to a person who is running for office to serve.

First, if they want Mukilteo to be “for all” as their logo and web site claim, it should and must include Peter Zieve and his vision for the city. It is one thing to run for office with a vision for the city, but to just say “Mukilteo for all” but not for Peter reminds me of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. “Some animals are equal but some animals are more equal than the others.”

Please come up with a vision and run for office if you would like, but attacking a person who has done good things in Mukilteo is just mean.

Second, when they sent their card to residents to warn us from Peter, they believe they are doing good. When he sent a card to discuss keeping us safe from terror, it was portrayed as a crime. I see this to be a double standard.

Finally, I want to say that I am a legal immigrant, a black American, and yet I feel welcomed in Mukilteo. It is already a welcoming place for all! There is no need to demonize a well-intentioned person.

They want us to say no to Peter, but I hope people will say yes to him instead.
