To the editor:

It is critical to this island’s future that Wayne Roth be elected to the city council. Wayne’s leadership experience, integrity and openness make him an ideal choice to help restore the community’s confidence in the council.

It’s time for the council to turn away from its negative approach to city services, secret e-mails and disparagement of the manager and city employees, and focus on meeting the needs of our island community.

As the former manager of KUOW Public Radio, and chairman of the board of National Public Radio, Wayne has a constructive vision of where the island needs to go, and the leadership skills, collaborative approach and commitment to open government required to get there.

A man who has devoted his career to promoting thoughtful listening, Wayne is also a great listener. Wayne is a person who synthesizes with insight and vision. Above all, he acts on the basis of facts, fairness and respect for board and community processes.

Please vote for Wayne Roth Nov. 5 and help bring mutual respect, collaboration and teamwork to our island’s city council.
