Thank you, Congressman Reichert, for your dedication to serving constituents | Letter

Congressman Dave Reichert’s leadership and commitment to serving our community is going to be a tough act to follow.

Given the current politically charged climate, Reichert has maintained a steady and thoughtful approach to issues big and small. His office and staff mirror his dedication to serving his constituents — they listen and solve problems.

An example is their immediate and effective response in the Norse Peak fire, on the day of Reichert’s announcement of his decision not to run for another term, a very busy day.

It may not be necessary to agree on all issues to support an individual who has been wise, selfless, tireless, honest and humble. No doubt Dave Reichert will continue to serve our community and nation. Thank you, Congressman Reichert.
