Thank you for your support | LETTER

I wish to extend a thank you to the citizens of Renton who supported my campaign and entrusted me with their vote. I do not take that lightly and am grateful for that support.

I also wish to say that change cannot come to City Hall if the status quo remains the same. It is time to bring real change and progress to our city, to help those who need it the most, to make rental costs affordable for families who are struggling and to address the growing homelessness and panhandling problem, and to raise the minimum wage to a living wage. These are real problems that are going ignored by everyone at City Hall.

Change is needed and if the same officials keep getting re-elected, that change will not come.

I lost the primary but my voice will not be silenced and I will continue to fight for those in need and whose voices are not being heard, I will fight harder and we will be heard. Our elected officials need to remember whom they work for — the citizens of Renton. It’s time they do the job they were elected to do.

I urge you to support Diane Dobson. She is the most deserving and hard working and will make Renton an even better place to live, work and visit. I am supporting her and urge my supporters to do the same. Together we can make a difference.

Max Heller III
