Ruth Perez, Diane Dobson ‘willing to sacrifice their time and energy’ | LETTER

Ruth Perez and Diane Dobson have my support and endorsements for Renton council as a former Renton City Council woman from 2004 to 2015.

Each of these two smart strong women care deeply about our Renton community, and are willing to sacrifice their time and energy to serve with all their heart & energy.

As a Former Renton City Council member for 12 years, I understand all that is involved with being an “elected official”.

I want council members who will ask tough questions of the administration, not just go along. That’s what I did.

Renton is a wonderful vibrant city that needs elected officials who truly represent the vast diversity and interests of all.

Diane and Ruth are the only council candidates that are proven to work hand-in-hand with us residents, toward a more representative community council.

Diane Dobson was Renton’s 2003 Citizen of the Year because of her proven community advocacy. She has continued her commitment to being a voice for all of us Rentonites.

From the city’s website about Citizen of the Year (http://rentonwa.gov/outstanding/): “The mission of the program is to formally recognize the contributions made by individuals who help to nurture the soul and sense of community in Renton through their selfless acts of generosity and volunteerism.”

This defines Diane to this day.
