Thank you for your support, votes | LETTER

Thank you so much for your belief in me during this past election! Words really cannot express my gratitude for your support. We are truly a team and I am honored to share this win with you.

Representing the residents of Renton and fighting for our needs, has been my top priority since joining the Renton City Council three years ago. When I got into this campaign almost a year ago, I got in to empower the voice of every Renton resident. It has been a long campaign, but our hard work has paid off.

This election shows that when we work together, commit to protecting the rights of our community and we unite instead of divide our community — we win.

Our democracy is beginning to reflect our community more and more. I hope to lead by example and pull people together. The election is over and the past is in the rear view mirror. Looking forward, for our residents, is what we are elected to do. With seven people on Renton City Council, we don’t have time to point fingers at each other. We cannot create divisions within our city. Right now, we need people who are going to unify our community.

I look forward to building a Renton that works for all. I will continue to advocate for our residents, fight for the rights of our community, stand up for our local economy, and protect our families as your Renton City Council member.

Thank you for standing with me, for your friendship, for your time and your support. I couldn’t have done this without you.

Ruth Perez
