Letter to the Editor: David Chen Stands for Everyone

Saturday, November 2, 2019

To the Editor;

If you are following the Shoreline City Council races on social media, you have no doubt seen a post or two regarding candidate David Chen and his former employer Crista Ministries. Crista has been in the news lately after sending a letter widely seen as anti-LGBTQ+. In light of Crista’s stance, David, their general counsel, resigned from his role.

Leaving a secure career job because Crista reversed course from its previous embrace of love and acceptance is a clear signal that David will stand up for what’s right. David’s decision was made from his heart — because he believes LGBTQ+ people deserve the same rights and protections as everyone else. His work fighting for students at Crista schools wasn’t “anti-LGBTQ+” and his decision to leave wasn’t “politically motivated.”

Instead, David’s career and strong judgement make it clear — he is driven by justice and integrity. We need his voice on City Council.
