Please don't overlook Proposition No. 1. It's the measure that if approved would increase the EvergreenHealth Board of Commissioners from five to seven members. EvergreenHealth is a public hospital and taxes the Redmond, Kirkland and Woodenville public. A seven-member board will be more representative of their constituents. Two of the present commissioners have been on the board for more than 30 years. The chairman will have had 41 years of service by the time his term ends. It's time for new blood. A revitalized board with two new members will broaden the viewpoint of the community and be more likely to open their community adviser meetings to the public.
Community Events, July 2016
I urge you to vote for Ramiro Valderrama for the 45th Legislative District State House of Representatives in the upcoming primary and general election.
The opinion letter ("Re-elect Kim Wyman for secretary of state") posted on July 17 fails to mention the following:
In the upcoming primary and general election, we need to perform our duty by voting for candidates who have the experience and the will to serve the changing and growing needs of our community. Simply checking a box and re-electing an incumbent is not always the best choice. I urge you to vote for Ramiro Valderrama for 45th Legislative District State House of Representatives.
The voters in the 45th Legislative District should send Rep. Roger Goodman back to Olympia. He has been an effective legislator who has worked effectively across the aisle to solve actual problems in our communities.
