By Evan Smith

Appointed Ronald Wastewater District Commissioner Wes Brandon and challenger Paul Barrera recently sent statements about their views on the most important issue or issues in the November 7 general election.

The two are running for the last four years of the six-year term that the late 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.

Here are the statements from Barrera and Brandon:

Ronald Wastewater District, Commissioner Position 5

The most important issue for the Ronald Wastewater District is the use of the budget. Currently, Ronald Wastewater spends thousands of ratepayer dollars to defend the City of Shoreline's assumption efforts. Instead, Ronald Wastewater should aggressively review its contracts with law firms to determine where Ronald Wastewater can withdraw from litigation. With that savings, Ronald Wastewater could appropriate funds to increase low income and senior discounts. As Commissioner, I would advocate to perform that legal contract review and roll out discount programs using the money I saved to make a more livable community. Vote Paul for Ronald Wastewater Commissioner No. 5. www.paulforronald.com

The major issue facing our wastewater district is to ensure that planning for future growth and financial stability continue to be the standard as assumption moves forward. For the past sixty-six years, the Ronald Wastewater District has provided a high level of service and customer satisfaction. We need to ensure that everyone in our service area continues to be well served through responsible budgeting and wise asset management keeping rates and fees affordable for all. As density and growth continue to increase, planning for the future needs to keep pace and it is imperative we meet those needs in order to keep our water and environment clean and healthy.
