I would like to express my thanks for the wonderful inclusive attitude from the city government yesterday. All of you were very welcoming and truly interested in hearing from us, the regular concerned citizens of Renton.
Special thanks must go out to Don Persson for coming and holding the Committee of the Whole meeting when he was feeling ill. I personally know how difficult it is for a senior under the weather to come and perform his civic duty when he is anything but well. I appreciate your genuine desire to include the citizens of Renton in the governmental process.
I especially like the new proposal of having all of the future Committee of the Whole meetings in the Council Chamber where they will be televised so that my dear friends and others who especially in the winter find it challenging to come to City Hall can participate from their homes. The rebroadcast of the Committee of the Whole helps those whose work schedules prevent them attending.
Thank you again for your opening the city governing process even greater to all of us regular citizens. We stand ready to support and aid in any way we can as our contribution to thecity. We don’t ask for pay. We are purely volunteers. We just appreciate the opportunity to serve.
