Zakhareyev will add a new, fresh voice to city council | Letter

My wife and I have live in Redmond for 27 years. Because of its family appeal, we chose Redmond to be the place to raise our six children. We have never been unhappy with our decision and plan to live out our lives right here in this great city.

It is a huge responsibility to run a successful city. I have never been in public office, but I have been to a few city council meetings. Although I do not plan to serve the city in an elected capacity, I do know a young man who desperately wants to make a contribution to the process. Eugene Zakhareyev is his name. I have known Eugene for about five years. He is an organized leader and has great desire to serve the community. It is no secret that running up against an incumbent is a difficult task. However, I am optimistic about Eugene’s determination and I hope to see him elected. I believe that his bipartisan approach will provide a new and fresh voice in the city council. Please, do what you can to provide the necessary coverage of Eugene’s campaign. He is worthy of your best efforts.
