Letter to the Editor: Vote for David Chen

Sunday, November 3, 2019

To the Editor:

David Chen (Shoreline, Position 4) is running in a tight race where every vote will count. Shoreline is going through a period of rapid redevelopment, and the community needs council members that have a vision for how to navigate this time of rapid change. David Chen is that candidate .

We can already see the historic North City Business District is being steadily replaced by apartment buildings that are 100% residential. Unfortunately, Shoreline does not protect or nurture its neighborhood commercial centers like every other city in Puget Sound. As the new light rail stations come online, the redevelopment of the up-zone areas has the potential to be an urban village with amenities for the entire community. We can see that the current path does not lead us there. Without support from the council, the current redevelopment of Shoreline will result in nothing but apartment complexes and endless town homes. David Chen has consistently advocated for an approach that encourages walkability, boosts neighborhood commercial centers, and provides opportunity for local small businesses. We need David Chen on the city council because he will advocate for these values.

David does his homework. He knows the issues and challenges facing our community and his campaign’s plans for how to move forward need every vote. His platform represents the kind of vibrant Shoreline that is within reach. Please vote for David Chen.
