  • Aug 11, 2011 at 4:28PM

The city versus common sense | Letters | August 12

  • Aug 11, 2011 at 4:30PM

I am a fourth generation Bainbridge Islander that grew up playing on the sandspit and now have a home on the lagoon. I am also an environmentalist and a believer in private property rights. The city’s current Shore Line Management proposal to designate the lagoon as an Aquatic Conservancy which requires restoration and removal of all overwater structures, with the long term goal of returning it to its natural state is absurd.

Hendrickson a sincere advocate for community | Letters | August 12

  • Aug 11, 2011 at 4:26PM

I work very hard not to involve myself in politics. But it doesn’t take a genius to see that our city government is struggling, and basic community needs are not being met. I’m not casting blame, I’ve quite liked the council members I’ve met. Whether our council’s cast stays predominantly the same or completely changes face, their modus operandi is going to have to be revamped. On that note, I want to share what I know of a person that has thrown her hat in to this race - Kim Hendrickson

Hendrickson proven to be capable, resourceful | Letters | August 12

For the at-large City Council position I would like to state my support for Kimberly Hendrickson. Hendrickson has an impressive background in political science and urban affairs and has been published in academic journals. In addition, as board member of Housing Resources Board, she added a new program that resurrected an old institution, HomeShare. HRB’s HomeShare places those looking for affordable housing in contact with homeowners who need a boarder to help with their mortgage payments or need help around the house.
