Diane Dobson is ‘unquestionably capable’ | LETTER

It is both exciting and refreshing to see a great group of candidates working hard to earn the privilege of serving their community. When I consider my support of a candidate, it will always hinge on how studied or outspoken I feel they are on local issues, or whether they have a history of connecting within the community they expect to serve.

Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to meet many wonderful people in Renton who have demonstrated their commitment to the betterment of our city, who in their rolls have made Renton a better place to live, a better place to raise a family, and a better place to open a business. We must continue to support leaders who embrace the responsibility of leadership and stewardship without partisan opinions, or personal agendas.

Diane Dobson is one of those leaders. She makes no apologies for her love and commitment to our community while following in her family’s footsteps of service to Renton. Diane is unquestionably capable, and most certainly ready and willing to represent you and I as Renton continues to rise up to the challenges we face. Like many who are raised with a servant’s heart, Diane has strong sense of duty to her community. I am looking forward to Diane Dobson taking her place as another strong and capable women representing our community while Renton forges ahead on a path to greatness. For all the right reasons, I fully support Diane Dobson for Renton City Council Position No. 2.
