Letter to the Editor: David Chen is the best choice for Shoreline City Council

Thursday, August 1, 2019

To the Editor:

As Shoreline citizens, we deserve great representation on our City Council. As the former Mayor and a two term City Councilmember, I know what qualities it takes to be a good representative.

David Chen is the best choice for Shoreline City Council Position 4. He has the experience and heart to be a dedicated public servant, and the intellect and knowledge to understand the issues. David understands the importance of preparing, researching, and analyzing the issues. He is an empathetic listener and highly values the opinions and concerns of citizens, like you and me. I encourage you to learn about his experience. David Chen for Shoreline City Council

New ideas and energy are needed on our Council. Issues are different now than they were 12 years ago. We are facing critical issues that need solutions. We need a representative who is tenacious, smart, understands the issues and is willing to work hard. The majority of our Councilmembers have served two or more terms.

An incumbent must earn your vote. Service alone is not a strong enough reason to be re-elected. I urge you to look at attendance and voting records (which can be requested at this link. Equally important are campaign finance records. The contributions and loans are important information when learning about a candidate's support. A large loan from a candidate to herself should give us pause to consider their reasons for seeking election.

David Chen is our best choice for our representative. He is dedicated, smart, has great ideas for solving problems and is willing to work hard for your vote. He's already knocked on almost 4000 doors to hear the concerns of our citizens. Please join me in voting for David Chen!

If new ideas are needed on the council, does that mean you also want Keith McGlashan and Will Hall off the council? Or is it only the people who were against your mass rezones you want off the council?
