Prewitt is valuable contributor on Snoqualmie City Council | Letter

I am writing to encourage the citizens of Snoqualmie to join me in re-electing Kathi Prewitt to the Snoqualmie City Council. Kathi is a long-standing, respected community member who approaches her role on the council with integrity. I had the pleasure of serving with Kathi on the Council for nearly 10 years and found her to be intelligent, well-informed and dedicated. She is thoughtful in her deliberations and has the best interests of the whole city in mind when making a decision.

Kathi’s background in management and banking lends critical experience to the city. When Kathi arrived on the Council she was an integral part of the decisions directing the city away from an unsustainable financial situation to financial health. Her guidance has served to maintain that health to the present day.

Kathi’s contributions on matters of law and policy are equally valuable. As a mark of trust in Kathi’s leadership, her colleagues on the Council elected her Mayor Pro-tempore several years in a row.

There are many difficult, sometimes controversial, decisions to be made as a Councilmember. Kathi welcomes community input in all decisions and considers that input when voting. She approaches decision making with diligence, research and compassion. Kathi is known for questioning issues until she is satisfied that the information provided will result in the best possible judgment.

We are fortunate to have Kathi’s qualifications and experience guiding Snoqualmie. I encourage you to re-elect Kathi Prewitt so that she can continue her exemplary work on our behalf.
