Ruth Perez helps ‘our communities in need’ | LETTER

As a Renton citizen, and a member of the state legislature, I feel strongly that Ruth Perez is the right choice for Renton City Council. Ruth has been fighting passionately for Renton as our city council member for the past three years. I recommend that Renton voters continue supporting her in this Aug. 1 primary (ballots arrive this week). Working as your State Legislator, I have seen Ruth be a strong supporter of Renton transportation and parks projects. Her testimony in Olympia was powerful, and made sure that Renton was not forgotten as the transportation package moved along. Ruth also pushed for more Renton projects be included in the Sound Transit package that was passed last November, as she heard from many in Renton who felt ignored by the proposed ST3 projects.

Ruth is highly visible throughout Renton, she is consistently at events in the city such as our farmer’s markets, neighborhood picnics, multicultural festivals, and Renton River Days, to name a few. But not only does she attend these events, she enthusiastically greets everyone. She makes time for everyone and cares about listening to all opinions. She leads Renton by serving for us on regional transportation committees and the Mayor’s Inclusion Task Force. Ruth listens to our concerns. She tries to help our communities in need and move Renton forward. She is the right choice for our city council and I strongly urge you to re-elect her!
