Our vote is for Ruth Perez | LETTER

We have been residents of Renton since the 1970s and have seen much growth and change in our beautiful city.

We are asking the citizens of Renton for your support in re electing Ruth Perez for Renton Council Position No. 6.

We first met Ruth three years ago at a city of Renton Neighbor to Neighbor Forum at City Hall after she was elected to the council in 2014. Ruth loves the Renton neighborhoods and attends many of the meetings and city events throughout the year.

We are impressed by Ruth’s honesty and compassion in representing the citizens of Renton.

Ruth loves the seniors in our community and has been the only city council member in my past three years on the Senior Advisory Committee to attend one of our meetings. This committee advises the mayor and council on matters of interest to the Senior Citizens of Renton.

The enthusiasm she brings to our community is contagious. Ruth is a good listener and often spends extra time talking to people about their concerns. No person will be able to solve all our problems but Ruth sincerely listens and will get back with you and keep you posted as things move forward.

As far as Ruth’s character is concerned she is a professional, very positive and diligent and is truly concerned with our citizens.

We urge you to vote for Ruth!

Darius and Vicki Richards
