Voting for Jami Smith ‘an opportunity not to miss’ | LETTER

The election of our local officials should be based on qualifications, and the choice of the candidate most likely and most able to fill the needs of our city.

Our city council works to keep the needs of all of our citizens in the forefront. Keeping our neighborhoods safe and providing all the needs of a growing city in a growing area keeps everyone busy. Our struggle to revitalize downtown has been, and remains a goal full of challenges.

This election year, we have a chance to elect a candidate who has the skills and business training and acumen to address that goal. Jami Smith comes with a background of building business and creating jobs that would fit Renton’s situation well. Her personal success in coordination of business interests would be invaluable. Her practical experience in education and business would be great tools. She has the education, knowledge and background to be a positive influence on the council and to bring fresh ideas and a broader outlook to the growth related issues the city faces.

Please vote for Jami Smith, for City Council. It’s an opportunity not to miss! She would apply her skills to the job at hand!
