To the editor: It’s true that public utility districts (PUDs) provide power and water to many areas in our state.
To the editor: There are times when standing pat poses greater risk than making a change. We face this situation as Bainbridge Island considers creating a public power utility.
To the editor: As a precinct caucus secretary and voter in Washington state, I am making time to encourage every voter to fill out their primary ballot and drop it off at drop boxes by Tuesday, May 24. Washington is a three-step process in its voting for the presidential campaign.
To the editor: After quite a few afternoons in a bus, barely creeping across Highway 305 to get home (for an hour), I think change is coming to 305.
To the editor: When driving on the two-lane roads all over the island, when there is a bicycle or a walker, runner, or dog walker in your lane, or someone out to retrieve their mail, you DO NOT SPEED UP into oncoming traffic to get around whatever is in your lane.
To the editor: The Bainbridge Island City Council has much to do. Buying the PSE electric power system on the island should not be one of those priorities.
To the editor: I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all who made our Faces of the Future Gala a resounding success to support the 400-plus members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bainbridge Island.
To the editor: “Affordable housing” on Bainbridge Island? LOL.
To the editor: During the month of March, Woodward Leadership class held a clothing drive for the Syrian refugees.

To the editor: One thing I love about Bainbridge is the “can do” attitude of so many islanders.
To the editor: What a brilliant idea buying out PSE with $100 million and getting lower cost energy and better handling of power supply and power failures.
To the editor: Some citizens want to replace Bainbridge Island's provider of electric power, Puget Sound Energy, with a “do-it-ourselves” alternative called Island Power. Please, the electric power we have got now, is more than interruptible enough.
To the editor: We write in response to Councilman Townsend’s letter to the editor published on April 8.
To the editor: Are we in another city spending spree?
To the editor: What will our grandkids be saying in 50 years about the actions we took in 2016 to address climate change?
