Shoreline: Headed in the Right Direction?

Your Voice Matters!

"As a City Council member I will listen to YOU before the Council affects a Shoreline neighborhood"

-Ginny

Addressing Crime in the City

We need to protect our neighborhoods and parks by enforcing our laws.  There is way too much petty crime happening all over the city.

      We also need to have a plan for the homeless in Shoreline.  So-called “tough love” policies have already worked well in Arlington, WA as well as Rhode Island.

Quality of Life

We need to have intelligent development.  Most of the 5-8 story buildings should be within a ½ mile radius of light rail stations (Sound Transit specs).  This would solve a lot of current traffic problems that are only going to be getting worse.

Ginny Scantlebury for shoreline city council

Over the past 6 years, I’ve spent hundreds of hours organizing Shoreline residents to get involved in the city process.

We’ve gathered over 1800 signatures for the plastic bag ban, the right to vote on ownership of Ronald Wastewater District & the Richmond Beach Road Diet.

We spoke at City Council meetings and sent letters to the council.  It had no effect.

It seems Shoreline City Council members & their staff only allow us to talk to them after they have already made up their minds.

As a City Council member, I will always listen, always fight for you & seek solutions that are in YOUR best interest.

gallery/shoreline budget chart

As you can see from this chart, Shoreline is currently headed for a budget nightmare.

 

Residents I've spoken with have made it clear that they already feel a heavy tax burden & without a change in direction, the city will have to raise taxes even more.

 

While other candidates have lists of projects they are excited to introduce (like an expensive sidewalk replacement city-wide), my plan is to reduce needless spending.

 

If elected I'll stand up for you every day, cutting pet projects & increasing efficiency to slim down our city budget. Shoreline could be doing a lot more to make your tax dollars go further, accomplishing that will be a top priority of mine.

 

This doesn't mean reduction in services: there is a lot more we could be doing with departments & budgets already in place. My goal is to make sure that your tax dollars serve YOU, in an actual sense.
