Valderrama for House of Representatives | Letter

  • Aug 14, 2016 at 8:30AM

I have known Ramiro Valderrama for a long time. I have worked closely with him in both a community citizen's group and in city government. I can say in both roles, he has exhibited true leadership. He understood the areas of concern that people had and always listened to additional concerns that were brought to his attention. Once he was aware of an issue, he was able to reach out to whomever he needed to build coalitions of support and get things done.

Concerned about marijuana regulations | Letter

  • Aug 13, 2016 at 8:30AM

Hundreds of concerned Redmond Ridge residents attended the July 25 meeting regarding existing county land-use regulations concerning the growth, processing and retail sale of marijuana. This was perhaps the most attended meeting in the history of King County Council and speaks volumes about the determination of the community to make sure their voice is heard and council does the right thing and does not make rushed decisions. Our community advocacy triumphed and we provided over 80 testimonies against the proposed amendments. We also submitted a petition which was signed by more than 1,600 concerned residents. This petition was authored by Vinod Sharma.

Community response needed for fire victim | Letter

  • Aug 10, 2016 at 4:02PM

On Aug. 6, one of our Education Hill neighbors on 171st Avenue Northeast experienced a house fire that required a hospital stay. Norm has lived in this home for many years and has been under the expert care of his caregiver, Judy, for 20 years. (Both last names are being withheld for privacy reasons.)

Goodman: a trusted supporter of the education system | Letter

  • Jul 30, 2016 at 9:30AM

Today I learned about a negative campaign flier that has been circulated by a group called Quality Communities Committee (Reagan Fund). This flier makes the absurd claim that Roger Goodman voted against the smaller class sizes required by Initiative 1351; voted on and passed by the voters in 2014.
