Armondo Pavone is ‘always open to diverse perspectives’ | LETTER

What do you need to know about the current council candidates in order to make an informed decision about who to vote for this primary election? Are they open and respectful of people’s diverse opinions, especially when they are different from their own?

Can the candidate engage and collaborate with the citizens and administrators of our city? This is important because diversity and collaboration are key to working together to find the best solutions for the future of our city.

Do they have the knowledge, skills and attributes to represent the people? Do they appreciate our history and have a vision for our future? Are they willing to do the work that needs to be done for you and me?

When I consider all these and other factors, my vote is for Armondo Pavone for Position 2. Based on my experience working with council on safety concerns, and coordinating the Public Safety Walk and Town Hall Meeting last fall, he has been highly engaged with our neighborhood, invests the time to understand issues, and is always open to diverse perspectives. He is focused on public safety, understands the role of city government, values our citizens, collaborates to find the best solutions, and is always willing to listen and learn what’s important to local residents.

Armondo is the best candidate for you and me — for the future of Renton.
