Enumclaw mayor deserves a thanks for a job well done

I have always been proud to say I live in Enumclaw.

I have always been proud to say I live in Enumclaw. I was raised here, got married here, raised our family here and have enjoyed our life here. But as the world continues to spin and news seems to get more unsettling every day, we seem short on good news. So when I see someone do something to make life a little easier for someone, the least I can do is to thank them publicly.

This is a thank you to Mayor Liz Reynolds for her two terms in office. She has bent over backward to do what she thinks is right and accomplish the goals she and the council are trying to take care of. There are probably a few who don’t agree with me, but they should take the time to get to know her and take a closer look at what she has accomplished. Take a look what she, the council and our very capable city manager, Chris Searcy, have had to deal with in our changing times. They have solved problems and did what was best for the city of Enumclaw.

At a time when many small towns are on the verge of insolvency and corruption, Enumclaw is solid and still shining and moving into the future and it is because of the good decisions they have made for our town.

A big thank you to Mayor Liz and City Hall! Whoever becomes our next mayor will find that they have a big pair of shoes to fill.

To then allow any person or group to inflict its particular religious beliefs upon others would clearly deny our right to freely worship and follow our own beliefs

Editor failed to be a fair moderator

Instead of framing the issues and allowing the readers to “form their own opinions on the matters at hand,” the editor chose to apply superfluous labels.
