Letters | Brad Toft should run again

In 2012, Brad Toft ran for Washington State Senate. His campaign for a high-level office made him an easy target for political attacks. Modern-day politics have often been described as a “dirty business” and this certainly proved true during the 2012 Senate campaign.

The grueling pressure of last year’s Senate race seems to only have increased his desire to serve his community. During the past nine months Toft has been contributing to the community in many ways. As Snoqualmie Valley Rotary President, Toft proposed moving the President’s Cup Golf Tournament to the course that hosted the Boeing Classic. As a result of this decision, the fundraiser significantly increased revenues resulting in donations of $7,000 to Rotary First Harvest and $5000 to Mount Si Food Bank. As a board vice president for the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce, he was part of the committee that brought Nate Perea in as the Chamber’s new CEO.

Our community has benefited from Toft’s dedication, experience and service. He should be encouraged to toss his hat into the political arena again. We deserve to be represented by a committed, honest and caring individual—and Toft is the one we need.
