Overall, Everett is a decent city. It is a melting pot that has its pros and cons. Pros: reasonable commute time to Seattle/mountain peaks, reasonable rent and lots of restaurants/local events. Cons: homelessness, crime and northbound traffic. I would like for the City of Everett to focus on drug education/prevention. Drugs contribute to many social problems, such as homelessness and crime. It would be naive to think that we can just throw money at these problems and that they would solve themselves. We must address the underlying cause; lack of education/awareness and drug use. It starts with community education/outreach and drug prevention programs both in and out of schools.

The city of Everett has continually been taking a stance against it's reputation of being a "unsafe" place to live. With the expansion of the Everett Community College campus it has truly become the place for millennials to be. Downtown is full of local restaurants that are a walk or quick Uber ride away. The waterfront has an incredible farmers market during the warmer months, complete with fresh local seafood. Over the next few years the waterfront itself is going to see a drastic facelift! The city will be expanding the port with shopping and apartment living. This is something that many in the area are looking forward to. Providence Regional Hospital has also in recent years grown, making it the second largest/busiest trauma hospital in our area. The growth of the city has been great for homeowners in the area. Many of us have seen an increase in our housing values with the continued growth.
This town is like the little engine that could. It is dynamic, chock full or arts activities and the music scene is excellent in quality and diversity. The Third Thursday Art Walk has really grown and the community events are fun and often free!
