Letter to the Editor: McGlashan v Kim

Friday, October 27, 2017

To the Editor:

In many respects, I am disheartened when our local politics devolve into the “fake” stories approach perpetuated in our National politics. Mr. McGlashan responded with specific, verifiable, information; his opponent’s camp chose to present facts which are not true. Notwithstanding their modest retraction, is it that the bigger the lie the more likely it is to be believed? I certainly hope our Shoreline voters see through this charade.

Mr. McGlashan’s record as a valuable public servant within our diverse community is unblemished. That he survived an unbelievable financial set-back and has come back is to be applauded.

Indeed Ms. Kim has come back from a terrible life experience, but that does not replace knowledge and experience. While I understand youthful exuberance, Ms. Kim identifies neither public nor not-for-profit service upon which we can judge her potential as a Shoreline City Council Member. I might add that this epidemic plague of addiction is significant, but this, in my opinion, is not the only plank upon which a candidate should stand.

November 7th is an important date to keep our City “on track”; please re-elect Keith McGlashan

It is a FACT that Keith McGlashan voted for the massive rezones that the majority of homeowners in the rezone areas and public comment did not want.
It is a FACT thar Keith became a realtor during these votes, and only disclosed this when asked.
It is a FACT that Keith pushed a larger than required rezone due to pressure film FutureWise and Forterra.
It is a FACT that Keith pushed for the 12 year tax breaks for all new housing development, thereby underfunding the school system and adding new students at the same time.
Keith is a nice guy, but his council voting record shows he doesn't vote in the best interest of citizens.
I don't know Jin, maybe she won't do a good job, but I know Keith hasn't.

"On-track" for what? Becoming the next Ballard, no thank you. McGlashan had his chance, and he sold out Shoreline to developers. I'd vote for GoodSpaceGuy over him!

It is entirely possible that we don't have a very good option in this race.
