Letter to the Editor: Voting for the future of Shoreline: vote David Chen for City Council

Sunday, November 3, 2019

To the Editor:

To ensure effective, equitable, and positive growth in Shoreline, I’ll be voting for David Chen for City Council. I have spent my career working for and leading community organizations and have firsthand knowledge of what it takes to be effective.

My wife and I moved to Shoreline in 2015 to start our family. Having lived in Shoreline previously, I was well aware of the excellent schools, great neighbors, and potential the community offered families like ours. In a short four years, the realities we face as a community are very different from when we moved here.

Since 2015 housing prices have continued to climb, infrastructure and community spaces are in demand, folks on fixed incomes need support, and our homeless neighbors still need help. These were previously Seattle problems – today, they are regional challenges that we must address here Shoreline. David has the skills and passion to help us navigate them.

We need our leaders to take innovative approaches to developing housing for all income levels, supporting and growing local business, and funding infrastructure that ensures equity and promotes community.

David’s deep experience volunteering and working in the community ensures he can work effectively on day one. He has experience building strategic partnerships and already cultivated relationships with regional elected officials (see endorsements). David’s fresh perspectives are needed on the council to bring new energy to addressing the challenges at our door.

I want to see Shoreline continue to shine, that’s why I am voting David Chen for City Council Position 4 and urge you to do likewise!
