Five reasons we’re voting for Ruth Perez | LETTER

Ruth Perez is asking for your vote for reelection to City Council Position No. 6. We have lived in Renton for 10 plus years and we would like to tell you why we are voting for Ruth Perez.

• Ruth shows up. She knows community events are a good opportunity to meet the citizens she represents.

• She shows up prepared. Ruth reads, studies, and reflects on the issues impacting our community and neighborhoods.

• Ruth listens. In a day and age where everyone has something to say, Ruth listens.

• No rubberstamp. Ruth studies all sides of the issues and asks tough questions. She seeks to understand the deeper problem and votes in the best interest of the citizens.

• Ruth does not feel she is entitled to your vote. She is determined to earn it.

Please join us in reelecting Ruth Perez to Renton City Council Position No. 6. She’ll be there for you.
