We are fortunate to have Ruth Perez on our City Council | LETTER

I am writing a letter of support for Ruth Perez for Renton City Council position 6.

I contacted Ruth several months ago with a problem related to the hillside across from my home. I had talked to other people in the city and county over the past years with the response being, “It is not our responsibility.” Ruth walked on our street and neighboring street to look at the site and better understand our concerns. She followed through and we now have with direct contact to King County staff who now are looking further into the drainage problem. She also checks back to see if our questions are being answered.

Ruth is committed to helping people in our city, bringing people together, building relationships in the community and giving everyone a voice. She goes the extra mile to meet and understand what people in Renton are concerned about. She attends numerous neighborhood meetings and supports the varied programs found in our wonderful city.

She is an excellent listener and has developed a strong core of relationships not only with citizens but with city, King County and state officials. She is a problem solver, hardworking and tenacious. We are most fortunate to have her on our city council.
