Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.

Our family enthusiastically supports Jan Molinaro as Enumclaw’s next mayor. His operations and fiscal management along with his leadership experience is superlative and would be greatly valued as a visionary leader of our community.

We urge citizens of Enumclaw to study the experience of both mayoral candidates. According to the Oct. 4 edition of The Courier-Herald, Jan states that his higher education “prepared me to be a critical thinker and obtain all of the information in order to make informed decisions. Using this approach has served me quite well during my career” (over 35 years). His managerial experience developing teams to integrate his collaborative style is what it takes to lead.

We have a beautiful community and people drive through Enumclaw throughout the year. Another area of comparison between the two mayoral candidates is their views on growth and tourism. Tourism and regulated growth can be planned well and should not be ignored. Jan is open to hearing new ideas. He stated in the edition cited above: “City government should be judicious when determining regulations and other burdens so as not to hinder our future business growth, but still consult with the community on issues that are important to them.”

Jan’s depth of managerial experience is reflected in his views on empowering business owners: “partnering with these organizations (local businesses and interested citizens), some new ideas could get off to a solid start and then step aside to allow these groups do what they know best.”

In conversations we have had with Jan, his idea of business growth does not encompass big box stores and out-of-control growth. It’s smart growth, allowing local businesses to thrive, listening to community members and working together.

This is not a partisan race; this is an opportunity to vote for the best person for the job of mayor. Jan Molinaro will get our vote. To learn more, visit www.electjan.org.
