I am in my 18th year as a Renton City Council member, and currently in my opinion we have the best mix of council members since I was first elected to the city council. This is the reason I am writing a letter to the editor to support the re-election of Ruth Perez.
It is important that we keep a nonpartisan council that always thinks of the best interest of the citizens of Renton. Sometimes these decisions are complicated and difficult and have long term affects. Ruth is a council member who always researches the issue before the council and helps come up with the best solution for everyone involved. Her best asset is she always listens to people and like one person told me, “Ruth not only listens to citizens, but she hears what they are saying.”
She embraces the opinions of all of our diverse community members, no matter who you are, where you live or where you were born and always encourages people to talk to council members if they have a question or issue within their community. I don’t know anyone who is more dedicated to the Renton community. I’m sure if you have been to any community event in the last three and a half years you have seen Ruth at the event, supporting the community. Ruth truly loves every segment of our great community.
This is why I am voting for Ruth Perez for Renton City Council and why she has the support of community leaders such as Norman McQuiller, retired neighborhood coordinator for the city of Renton.
