Letter to the Editor: Strom Peterson best choice for 21st District legislative seat

Dear Editor,

I do not often write letters like this to the editor, but I have been reading about the upcoming primary for State Representative to the 21st Legislative District (Position 1). I was surprised to see such a wide field (5 candidates), but also reassured to see a name I could trust among the group: Strom Peterson.

Strom Peterson, an Edmonds City Council member, has been working tirelessly for the last five and a half years to find ways to improve our communities and  to put the needs of the whole community first. He is engaged, as an elected official should be, participating in community events and volunteering for County-based charities and organizations, and he has been responsive to his constituents, focusing on the needs and concerns of citizens from all areas and groups. He never seems to lose his patience or avoid difficult challenges, and he has demonstrated a strong ability to work with people across a wide spectrum of backgrounds.

Representative Roberts choose well to endorse Strom to take her seat in the State House because we need his kind of resolve and commitment to the citizens of Edmonds, Mukilteo, and the rest of the 21st Legislative District.

Leslie Chandler, Edmonds
