Introductory statements from Ronald Wastewater candidates Barrera and Brandon

Friday, September 29, 2017

By Evan Smith

Appointed Ronald Wastewater District Commissioner Wes Brandon and challenger Paul Barrera are running in the November 7 general-election ballot for the last four years of the six-year term that longtime Commissioner Arnie Lind won in 2015.

Barrera and Brandon are seeking one of two Ronald Wastewater District positions on the November ballot. Incumbent Commissioner Bob Ransom is running unopposed for the other position.

The Ronald Wastewater District includes the city of Shoreline and part of Woodway.

Barrera and Brandon recently sent these statements introducing themselves to voters:

Ronald Wastewater District Commissioner Position 5, 4-year unexpired term

Paul Barrera

My name is Paul Barrera and I want your vote for Ronald Wastewater Commissioner.

I will bring my good judgment, business and legal experience to reduce Ronald Wastewater's wasteful spending on unnecessary legal costs.

I believe in transparent government. I will advocate for evening meetings, resulting in increased community participation by ratepayers.

I will promote Ronald Wastewater's independence. Ronald Wastewater is bigger than the City of Shoreline, as it covers most of Shoreline and Woodway, and exists in King and Snohomish counties. I will bring an independent voice to Ronald Wastewater until its assumption into the City of Shoreline.

Wes Brandon

Denise and I moved to Shoreline more than 37 years ago. We have raised our children here and have watched the area grow and change over that time. I have had the privilege of participating in many groups in our community and understand the importance of citizen input, oversight and guidance as part of that process.

As commissioner I now need your vote to continue to serve and work diligently on your behalf as the district is assumed by the City of Shoreline. My priorities are to keep rates affordable and ensure transparency and accountability in the process while maintaining service levels.

Thank you and vote November 7.

[Editor's note: Both candidates are included in the RBCA Candidate Forum on Tuesday, October 10th. See previous article]
