Lynnwood, WA Just Blew $80,000 on a Stupid Sign

I live in Lynnwood.  It’s a smallish suburb north of Seattle, very middle class, and is comprised of numerous strip malls lining Hwy 99 and 44th Ave W, two parallel arterials about 2 miles apart.  Along I-5 is  the very huge Alderwood Mall that is ringed by more strip malls.   There is no downtown.  Nobody goes to Lynnwood as a destination, they go to whatever mall meets their need. 
But, enterprising Lynnwood is trying to “brand” itself to encourage tourism and business. (???)  In their wisdom, the City of Lynnwood just invested $80,000 for this new logo that is meant convey the brand and essence of Lynnwood.  Ta Da!

 HA, HA, HA!  Who in their right mind would pay $80,000 for this logo design?

Saw this today….man, what a waste of money! But then again, that’s what Lynnwood does best.
I stay away from Lynnwood anyway because of their stupid red light cameras all over the place.

Damn, they could’ve gotten a better logo if they bought me (and my mad PowerPoint skills) a case of beer.

LTG-this City Council Pres. Mark Smith says its “a strategic investment in the future of the city” Wow! Mark,you are so smart! lets blow through money like it was water,hek you have so much of it. I think I would be checking Mark’s deep pockets. Maybe,even the rest of the city council. This is ridiculous. Sounds like Calif. politics.

I agree with DCG, We live in Bothell, but we almost never go to Lynnwood. We hate those stupid camera, they are just a ploy to generate money for the city. Money the city loses because no one goes there to shop, because of the camera. Woodinville, Bellevue and Redmond can provide us with the same foods and merchandise as Lynnwood, and we are willing to drive further to avoid the cameras.
