Letter to the Editor: I support Doris McConnell

Saturday, September 14, 2019

To the Editor:

I would like to add my voice in support of Doris McConnell in her race to represent Shoreline on the city council. Her opponent, David Chen, is not only a supporter of real estate developers, but now we learn he has been affiliated with Crista Ministries, am organization which does not support their LGBT students and staff.

I do not want someone representing me on my city council who does not support equal rights for all citizens. I cannot believe that Mr. Chen had no idea his employer, Crista, held these views. I suspect that with the recent brouhaha about staff and students leaving the school because they felt unwelcome, he decided to cut his losses and disassociate himself, but I am sure he has known all along about their 19th century policies.

Vote for Doris McConnell, she will represent all citizens of Shoreline fairly and she won't be selling out to real estate developers who want to cram more and more apartments into our city, cutting down trees and grabbing single family homes for profits.

You are welcome to your opinion, but not your own facts. I know nothing about David Chen, but your facts are all wrong about Crista’s policies and practices.

I agree Doris is the stronger candidate but what's wrong with urban density? Speaking as a home-owner, we need more affordable apartments for young people who can't afford our astronomical houses. All this opposition to affordable housing is selfish NIMBYism, in my opinion.
