Fetterly will save Bainbridge from Bainbridge | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

The candidates for city council have been appearing at various forums answering questions and mostly talking about themselves.

Kevin Fetterly has been knocking on doors in the North Ward asking voters their opinions and what they want of the city council. Ever higher taxes are forcing people who have lived their whole lives on Bainbridge are contemplating leaving.

They see the city council planning and facilitating rapid growth. They hear about underground parking garages, bridges across Highway 305, park and recreation with 44 parks planning huge buildings, the police department needing a $28 million facility, Island Power waiting to try again to do a hostile takeover of Puget Sound Energy, and a city that cares more about people who don’t yet live here instead of those who do.

All of this real concern is why Kevin Fetterly wants to save Bainbridge from Bainbridge.
