Padhye brings a fresh, diverse perspective to the council |Letter

I first met Tanika Padhye when we were contenders for the same city council seat recently vacated by Kim Allen. Since being appointed to the council in March 2017, Tanika has worked hard and brought a fresh and diverse perspective to the table.

Tanika has taken the trouble to educate herself on what it takes to run our city – unlike some of the “loud” candidates in the fray. She engages with all in our wonderful community to make sure every voice has an opportunity to be heard.

The vast majority of Redmond’s citizens love what our city offers us – a superior quality of life for ALL.

I’ve lived in Redmond for “only” 12 years, but I’ve spent most of those dedicating myself to getting to know and serve the folks in my town. Tanika has volunteered to assist with solutions rather than criticize those who stepped up. She chose to involve herself.

I have no doubt she will continue to prioritize sensible and real solutions to growth and address issues such as a lack of affordable housing and traffic congestion. Please choose the right candidate for position 4 – choose Tanika!
