Letter to the Editor: Two Votes for Janet Way

Friday, October 28, 2011

To the Editor:

We got to know Janet Way well when we first began working with her to save South Woods from a development plan that was moving along briskly. If that plan had not been thwarted we would see buildings and car- filled lots on this site. Instead it is now a wonderful city park.

The path to save South Woods was long, complex, and arduous. It began with South Woods Preservation Group and culminated with the City of Shoreline embracing the idea. We gained respect for Janet through that process. We like her thinking and her energy. We know that she brings these qualities to a variety of environmental challenges Shoreline faces. The scope of her work is impressive.

For us, environmental quality is extremely important. We very much value having a person on the City Council who carefully measures events from an environmental perspective. Janet Way does this.

I totally agree. I'm so tired of having a handful of people who were elected to represent us go behind closed doors and return to tell us what their vision for the City is. Most of moved here because of the single family housing and lots of trees. Now we are seeing both bull-dozed for the grand "vision". While development is much needed, it should be done based on the guidance of the taxpayer/voter; not some know-it-all panel of people who mis-use their position to impose it on the rest of us. Boot McConnell and vote for Janet Way - she believes in and has a demonstrated record of working in an OPEN public process.

Closed door meetings, huh? Like Janet Way did with Maggie Fimia & Cindy Ryu to fire the City Manager & hire their buddy?

She's only "open door" when it suits.
