Witschi is the right choice | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

"As a Human Resources consultant, Carol Ann has a professional maturity that allows her to listen to many different viewpoints in an open and respectful manner."

Carol Ann Witschi has earned our votes.

My family and I have lived in Renton for generations and have always paid close attention to our local elections.

This year, we are once more grateful for the caliber of candidates running for City Council. Specifically, I would like to share my thoughts regarding Council Position No. 3 candidate, Carol Ann Witschi. She and I are both on the Board of a local service group and I have experienced first-hand her approachability, tenacity, curiosity and commitment to Renton.

As a Human Resources consultant, Carol Ann has a professional maturity that allows her to listen to many different viewpoints in an open and respectful manner. As a mother of two young children, she sets an example by contributing her time and talents toward a hopeful future for our community.

Carol Ann has taken nothing for granted in this election. She rolled up her sleeves, demonstrated her solid work ethic and made it her mission to connect with and listen to as many voices in our community as possible during her five months of canvassing, picnicking and doorbelling. Carol Ann won’t be elected by default because she has earned and deserves every one of your votes.

We are truly excited to have Carol Ann join the Renton City Council and we know that she will work as hard for our city as she did to get there.

Angelina Benedetti,
Renton
