Diane Dobson has my support in the upcoming election | LETTER

Diane is committed to Renton with her long standing knowledge of our community with its challenges and issues. She has done a super job of trying to keep the residents informed on issues that involve us. I know it has not always been easy for her, but she keeps at it. She is a voice for us with her willingness to use her energy listening to us and being open with choices we now know about. She surely has the credentials of caring for the community with her volunteering, her Citizen of the Year award in 2003, and her proven community advocacy as a voice for all of us in Renton.

We need council members who will get information out to the community like Marcie Palmer did when she was on the council.

Linda Middlebrooks,

Renton
