To the editor:
After being disappointed in several decisions made by the Bainbridge Island City Council we decided to find out more about new candidates for city council. We met several who were invited to address residents of Vineyard Lane.
We were particularly impressed by Matt Tirman. He was well informed about our city issues and has taken positions that suggest he will be a good steward of our tax dollars.
By comparison, the city council members running for re-election have continually wasted our money by authorizing multiple parking garage studies, changing our city logo, and wasting money designing a bridge to nowhere.
Most discouraging is that city council decisions have historically been made in private and well in advance of any public meetings. We believe that Matt’s presence on our city council will promote greater transparency and decisions that better reflect the greater public good.
We encourage everyone to vote for Matt Tirman, but in any case get out and vote this November. By not voting you are not participating in your own future.
