Berrios equipped to be mayor

Jim Berrios is the best choice for mayor as he has the best business experience.

Example of his integrity: The City Council passed taxes – garbage and B&O – on homeowners and businesses to fix roads. During the first two years of this tax, the council spun off $8 million to pay for other projects. The next year Dana Ralph stated she wants to use road taxes for other projects. Berrios said, “We promised the money would be used to improve Kent’s streets. We should not be using bait-and-switch tactics.”

Kent has become one of the largest welfare cities in the state, with a high crime rate.

If you move from Renton to Kent, your car insurance will go up.

We need Mr. Berrios’ business experience to try and dig us out of this big expensive mess Kent’s in.
