I urge all of you to vote for Melanie Keenan for City Council. Melanie is a brilliant, yet genuinely engaging woman who understands how our city government should work. She strongly supports the direction the council is taking to get our financial situation under control.

As a former Park District commissioner, I saw first hand that both the city and parks should cover all of the plans included in the Port of Bainbridge Island initiative.

Oh my gosh. It’s depressing, isn’t it, the relentless drumbeat of alarm-driven letters to the editor and guest editorials from some of Bainbridge Island’s shoreline property homeowners? We certainly are getting their message, loud and clear: Be afraid!

Bicyclists and other community activists are calling the event “Safe Roads For All,” and it’s not an oxymoron like it may sound.
