I was wrong about the candidates | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Relying on apparently faulty information from what I considered to be two reliable sources, my claim that candidates for Bainbridge Island City Council were board members of Island Power appears to be incorrect. According to Joe Deets, he was never associated with Island Power and would not have supported having the city spend $100,000 to study the idea of a city power utility. Instead, he would have asked supporters to fund the study with donations. He claims to be responsible for raising private and grant funds to install solar panels on Sakai Middle School and City Hall.

According to Ron Peltier and Joe Deets, Rasham Nassar also refutes any connection to Island Power.

I apologize to both Deets and Nassar for making incorrect statements and hope that they can accurately demonstrate their points of view on this subject in the media and at candidate forums.
