Snoqualmie Mayor and Council incumbents have the experience, dedication to keep city on right track | Letter

Mayor Matt Larson and council members Bob Jeans, Bryan Holloway and Kathi Prewitt have a proven record of outstanding dedication and service. Back in 2006, when the city was headed for insolvency, it was these leaders who formed a plan and got the city headed back in the right direction.

Without a drastic change in fiscal policies, Snoqualmie was facing a terrible budget crises no later than 2010. Larson, Jeans, Holloway, and Prewitt took on these and many other difficult issues with courage and resolve, so that in the economic downturn of 2008, while other municipalities were looking at significant budget deficits, Snoqualmie’s budget was fully funded. No small feat.

Now, Snoqualmie rates as one of the safest cities in Washington State and one of the best cities in America in which to raise a family. This quality of life is the direct result of the leadership and dedication of these four public servants.

I served with these electeds for a little over 10 years, and it’s accurate to say that no one could serve with more dedication or more attention to what the citizens of Snoqualmie want than these four people have. Larson, Jeans, Holloway, and Prewitt: Voting for them is a vote for a continued improvement in the quality of life in Snoqualmie. Re-electing them is preserving the hard-won lessons of the last decade. Asking them to serve another term is not just the right decision for Snoqualmie, it is the best decision.

This election, keep the outstanding leaders who have served us so faithfully: Matt Larson, Bob Jeans, Bryan Holloway, and Kathi Prewitt.
