Hanrahan for Black Diamond City Council

In my opinion Ed Hanrahan will make an excellent Black Diamond City Council member and deserves your vote.

As a person who has been to many City Council meetings over many years, I have had the chance to meet Ed Hanrahan and observe his opponent. In my opinion Ed Hanrahan will make an excellent Black Diamond City Council member and deserves your vote.

After watching the current mayor inappropriately cut off council members and pretend her allies don’t need to follow any rules of decorum, I know we don’t need more supporters of the mayor on council. We need Ed Hanrahan.

Ed is an experienced leader who has the ability to instill respect and integrity into situations even where everyone does not agree. His opponent seems to only listen to those who are yelling the loudest.

On the issues, Ed Hanrahan is going to scrutinize all city actions. For example, he will do everything in his power to make sure our taxes don’t subsidize big developers.

His opponent wants to be a “yes-person” whose plan, in my opinion, is to get along with the developers at all costs.
