Ralph has a vision for Kent

The business of running a city should not be run like a business. It requires the ability to know the difference between legislative and executive experience and the balance that will best serve the residents of Kent. It is about providing a “quality of life” for all the people who live, work and play in our city. It is about a vision with a plan to make things happen and not waiting for things to happen.

It is for these reasons I am supporting Dana Ralph for mayor. Dana’s local and regional work on behalf of our community gives energy and focus to her commitment to our future. Dana Ralph is the best choice.
