I just wanted to take a moment to tell you about my fellow colleague Ryan McIrvin.
Savannah Clifford-Visker raises some valid points in her voters pamphlet regarding her candidacy for Valley Medical Center Commissioner. She has a good understanding of the current situation and hopefully could work toward making some worthwhile changes if elected.
"As a relative of someone who just received a concussion being struck by a red-light-running driver on a cell phone, I am furious that people like this have such little consideration and thought."
"We have lost many responsible downtown businesses due to indecisiveness of the city to create a safe and clean environment."
"The winds when they come will not be able to be stopped by a forested break to calm them. The dust will fly for years."
"The band, the food, the drinks, the volunteers, the sponsors and the organizers all did a top- notch job of providing us with a very memorable evening."
"Without the facts, the voters in Renton’s school district have no way to gauge the actions of their elected officials, and that is simply unacceptable."
"When it comes to the direction of the organization tabbed with educating our children, parents deserve, no demand, to know what that direction is and what issues cause this amount of disagreement at the highest levels of leadership within the district."
"The Supreme Court should choose to uphold justice, equality and non-discrimination."
"Bottom line: Redefining marriage dilutes what has worked since the beginning and ignores the fundamental needs of children."
"That brings me to my question: Is a RFA the only way path to follow for needed improvements for fire and emergency services or is there another way that would be as good or better for both fire and emergency service(s) and the residents of the served areas?"
"We find it difficult to understand how adding new traffic to a failing intersection is in the public interest."
"It is posted as a no-dog park, yet the signs are ignored and Coulon is quickly becoming a popular dog park."
"The Renton staff is cooperative, dedicated and caring. The bands supply lively music at the popular dances every Thursday afternoon with about 100 people in attendance."
"I also just finished reading the article by Police Chief Milosevich with great interest. I was glad to hear his replies and believe he is on the right track to making sure Renton is a place where something like Ferguson could never happen."
"I read the letter to the editor that the owners of Alpine Nursery wrote about developing their property. I sympathize with what they want to do – but don’t blame everything on Renton."
"On last Sunday evening (after the victory) or Monday morning, our Seahawks 12th Man Flag was removed from our flagpole, located next to our house and about 20 feet from the curb."
"Please remember them in your thoughts and prayers; they still need help and support."
"I want to express publicly my congratulations to the City Council for an outstanding job selecting a replacement for the recent council vacancy."
"Do we want results from our stand on firearms or do we just want to feel good because we voted for a law that punishes law-abiding citizens but not criminals?"
