Support Troutner for council

As a former City Council candidate, and after careful consideration, I have decided to cast my vote for Toni Troutner.

Toni’s credentials as a dedicated servant to the citizens of Kent and involved parent have been well-documented over the past few years.

Her tireless contribution to our community is greatly appreciated as are the goals she has articulated to make our community a safer and more prosperous place to live for our children.

Toni’s dedication to professionalism, leadership and being a positive voice for the citizens of Kent won my support.

I believe she will be a true advocate for Kent families, I wish her the very best in the general election and urge my fellows citizens and supporters to cast their vote for Toni Troutner for City Council this November.
