Dickson brings sense of ‘community’ to council | Letter to the Editor

As many of you know, my husband and I have been in business for 50 years in this community. I like to think “community” is still a big part of why we choose to work and/or live here.

As many of you know, my husband and I have been in business for 50 years in this community. I like to think “community” is still a big part of why we choose to work and/or live here.

Darrel Dickson is “community.” Both he and his wife, Holly has supported my business to the 100th degree. During the flower basket controversy last spring, they were right there to purchase my baskets and spread the word “98022-Shop Local!.” Just one of many examples – when fireworks were cancelled as part of the Fourth of July celebration, Darrel stood up and raised the funds needed. His “community” spirit made it happen!

My son and I see a whole lot of Enumclaw voters at GE&B Nursery every day we are open. Darrel’s name might come up as do other civic leaders. One thing that stands out always is his passion for Enumclaw and his status as hometown born and raised. He cares.

Keep Darrel as a council member. We need him.
