- City in Washington
Current Resident: 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.
