Burien Council Set to Vote on August Annexation Election at April 2 Meeting


Burien City Council members agreed at Monday night’s meeting (March 19) to vote at their April 2 meeting whether to schedule an election on the annexation of North Highline for August 7, which is also the primary election date.

Should the council opt to delay a decision on an annexation election, they would still have another couple of months to schedule that vote for the November general election.

    The Burien city council is afraid of a large voter turnout so they opt for an August annexation vote. About 50 percent fewer people vote in August than in November during a presidential election year. Waiting two months to hold the annexation election (in November) is the right thing to do, but clearly Burien is not interested in doing the right thing for the people of White Center. For Burien this is not about building community, it is about acquiring land to expand their tax collections.
