Shoreline City Council incumbent Keith McGlashan and challenger Jin-Ah Kim recently sent statements about their views on the most important issue or issues in the November 7 city election. Here are their statements:

City of Shoreline, Council Position 1

Keith McGlashan

Safety: I prioritized prevention and we lowered crime. I will continue to give police tools to get the job done.

Parks: I supported expanding parks, including 2 dog parks. I will prioritize 40 more acres, replacing our pool, and senior/recreation center.

Services: As a community volunteer, I fight for a safety net for neighbors in need. I support Shoreline schools; education and opportunity are vitally linked.

Growth: I worked for developments that marry housing, retail and transit to reduce congestion, pollution, and neighborhood crowding. I will fight to protect our environment.

Taxes: We must attract businesses that generate sales taxes (and shopping options!), to fund services AND stabilize property taxes.

East Shoreline:

Save Hamlin Park took over two months for a decision. It’s was a no-brainer decision, don’t cut 4 acres from Hamlin. I vow to protect the environment and improve communication regarding changing infrastructure, for example the 5th Ave bike lanes.

West Shoreline: Point Wells

In short: I would resist any agreement from a developer that would exceed a 4,000 daily trip capacity for Richmond Beach Road. Under my opponent's administration, an agreement was made with developers that supported 11,587 trips. All indications point that he would support an agreement that would exceed this. I will fight for the people of Shoreline and for responsible development.

Kim gets my vote simply on the Point Wells issue. Vote Jin-Ah!
