Voting for Lauk to truly represent citizens | Letter to the Editor
I am writing to express my disgust with Councilman (Darrel) Dickson and his actions, along with other members of this current council, in regards to trying to bring massive new development to Enumclaw. Their attempts in the last couple of years to overturn the building and development ban on the Thomas Farm and the White River Tree Farm so their own real estate businesses could make money at the expense of the rest of the citizens should be illegal, if it is not already.
Mr. Dickson says he has lots of business experience and that is why we should vote for him in this election, but who’s interests is he serving, his 44 business and land deals or ours? This is a fair question. We really need to clean house with this current council and the best way to start bringing honesty, accountability and integrity back to city politics is to vote Dickson out of office.
I am voting for Kimberly Lauk. We need her representing us, so someone is representing citizens again, not just big developers and land speculators. Dickson’s recent statements denying what he has tried to do only makes him look more guilty than ever and he is not being honest – we cannot trust him ever again. This is the government of the citizens. Let’s take it back.
This is Part 2 of a three part in-paper Enumclaw mayoral debate between Jan Molinaro and Kim Lauk. Both are first time candidates for mayor. The incumbent, Mayor Liz Reynolds, chose not to seek a third term.
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are on the rise across the U.S. and Washington and King County data show a similar trend towards more syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
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.
The Courier-Herald is publishing a three-part debate between Black Diamond Mayor Carol Benson and her opponent Judy Baxley. Last week, candidates answered questions concerning the city, and what they would do as mayor to address any issues. This week, Part 2, is a chance for candidates to rebut their opponent’s statements. Part 3 will wrap-up with final statements.
Bills show hundreds of residents doubled or tripled their water usage in the past two months, but many say they’ve not increased, or even decreased, their water consumption, and the city’s system must be wrong.
