Zakhareyev puts in the time and energy to educate people | Letter

If you’re like me and my family, you’re focused on the personal chores of everyday life and the tasks that need to be accomplished to ensure their safety and future. I’d like to believe that common sense in local government will always prevail, but I know that I don’t have the time to verify my trust of local government.

To that end, I want to recognize the efforts of Eugene Zakhareyev, who has volunteered tireless amounts of his time and energy to inform the residents of the Overlake of Redmond community about local planning issues that impact the quality of our daily lives in the Overlake area. Eugene’s knowledge of the area, professionalism and unbiased fact-based approach to educating the community on many planning issues over the past few years is the rare type of respectable, common sensible leadership that I can trust and support.

Eugene has earned my vote to represent me and my family for the Redmond City Council position 4.
