Great news! Friday Morning in Snohomish County Superior Court, Judge Michael T. Downes, ruled that the Mukilteo initiative will be allowed to go on the November ballot, in spite of the claims made by the ATS front group “Mukilteo Citizens for Simple Government” that this topic was not subject to the initiative process.
Judge Downes said, “This is a unique situation where citizens want to vote but also the city council, the duly elected representatives, also want to hear from the electorate.” He went on to say “A lawsuit at this point is premature. I don’t know how voters are going to vote on this but I see no harm in letting them vote. If it is approved, plaintiffs or those with interest in this issue can file a legal challenge afterward, but again, I see no harm in having this proceed.”
