EDITORIAL Thanks to all candidates

Sunday, December 6, 2009

Citizens of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park owe a big “thank you” to all the candidates who ran in the recent local elections. Candidates subjected themselves to lots of abuse in the mail, in newspapers, in automated telephone calls, and, in the case of Shoreline, in speeches at City Council meetings. Most of the candidates put up with all of this because they genuinely want to serve their communities. For democracy to work in our communities, we need people who are willing to put themselves forth as candidates. Kudos to everyone who was willing to spend their time, energy, and money and to work hard to serve their community.
