"I’m writing to express my joy in the fact that Renton, my hometown, was among one of the seven cities to receive a $100,000 King County Youth Sports Facilities Grant to provide outdoor fitness equipment in local parks."
"The challenge, I feel, was a thinly disguised plan by the majority of the hospital district board to regain control of Valley Medical in order to dump the CEO."
"I find myself in a unique position in that I am the only remaining trustee on the UW Medicine/Valley Medical Center Board that approved the Strategic Alliance."
"Although the commissioners are part of the 13 members of the Board of Trustees, they have no clout with the 8 to 5 ratio ... in reality more like 8 to 2 with the way the current commissioners vote."
"The Valley Medical Center/UW Medicine strategic alliance has proven to be a tremendous asset to this community by improving access to quality services at a reduced cost. It’s great news for our community that this debate fueled by a couple of disgruntled commissioners is finally over."
"Of course, people need places to live, and there are economic benefits to the city from development. But this is the wrong place to develop, the costs outweigh the benefit."
"The best and only solution to this mess is to stick with the 2001 master plan, which states that I-405 from Renton to Bellevue should be widened by two lanes in each direction."
"We have now gone through our third builder, all three backing out of our original contracts, mainly due to the unanticipated costs associated with the changing city requirements for development."
"I would like to bring your attention to an exceptional candidate I am supporting for state representative."
"Every day during rush hour you can expect one to three cars in the bus lane illegally cross the intersection instead of making the right turn at the intersection as required."
"It has been a miracle that no child has been struck by a car yet. However, I witness two or three near misses every day. It is only a matter of time before a child is seriously injured or killed."
"We need more concerned families to share their stories, instead of people who don’t live in the neighborhood, but claim to live here."
"I would challenge the notion that the city takes a 'hands-off approach to homelessness.'"
"The Time clock is ticking down I grit my teeth with all my might Something big is about to happen It’s Seahawk Football Night! "
"Please choose an alternative to chemical weed control. There are propane weed torches that are super effective that are 100 percent non-polluting."
"As a Renton resident, I understand the anguish of severe depression."
"Frank does an excellent job of artistically creating images that reflect local events in our area."
"These “cartoons” are not funny, they are not informative, that are poorly done in all respects and exude derision which is offensive to anyone civilized."
"I lived close to Gene Coulon Park for many years and was appalled to learn that geese were killed in or near the park."
"PSE and their consultant Enviroissues have purposely manipulated a process that is not fair, accurate, thorough nor transparent."
