Thank you to everyone who donated, walked, strategized, volunteered, signed and supported us! The Everett Districts Now plan for five district; two at-large is on the ballot this November!
You did it! The City Council agreed! It's time for better representation in Everett!
On July 11th, Everett City Council members had a unanimous vote to place 2 propositions on the November ballot to establish districts for council seats. The move was a direct response to the community effort to create 5 districts and 2 city-wide seats.
Everett Districts Now!, has been collecting signatures to amend the city charter and were on track to collect the needed 3,500 signatures. EDN has suspended our effort to collect signatures so as not to confuse voters with a second ballot measure. In the final days, the council amended their proposal to include all the Everett Districts Now amendments to the timeline and other requirements.
Join the movement to get out the vote for fair and equitable representation! Please like, share and spread the word! The first step was to get 5/2 on the ballot and we did it! #DistrictsNow
City of Everett Survey Indicates Overwhelming Support for Council Districts
Priorities identified by Everett residents match community effort for 5 districts and 2 at-large
Thank you for attending the Everett Districts Now official campaign kickoff, which took place on March 4th at the Everett PUD Building (2320 California Street) in the Commission Meeting Room. Supporters will heard from area leaders include City Councilmember Brenda Stonecipher and former House Representative Luis Moscoso, who shared the history of his efforts to establish improved voting rights for districts in Washington!
Currently, all council members are elected at-large, as a result, 5 out of 7 live in the northern part of the city. Districts would ensure fair and equal representation across the entire city. A city government that comes from the people will better serve all people.
We believe Everett is a great and growing city. We believe that the people of Everett deserve equitable and fair representation. We believe that a city government that comes from the people will better serve all people.
We believe that Everett must have districts, now!
