Dana Ralph received endorsements from the Kent Police, the Kent Fire Department (now Puget Sound Regional Fire Authority) and the Kent teachers union.
The police required her to be interviewed by a panel, the fire department reviewed a questionnaire she submitted and the teachers’ union required both a questionnaire and an interview from her.
All three chose the best candidate to endorse.
Dana will plan for a fiscally sound future for Kent, for residents and business owners. She voted against selling the par 3 golf course and had a proposal to keep it as open space. Council members and the mayor did not support an extension to review this plan and now, with the 500 units of multi-family housing being built, the city of Kent needs to implement $3 million to upgrade drainage in the basin. The developer is not paying into this.
Sound fiscal planning? No.
Dana promotes teamwork, wise economic development and is committed to the job.
Look at the attendance records of council members. Dana shows up to get the job done. Our vote is for Dana Ralph, who will work to keep Kent a safe and desirable city for residents and businesses.
