To the editor:

I wanted to let you know why I believe so strongly that we all should support Arlene Buetow for Bainbridge Island City Council.

I’ve known Arlene for more than 20 years. During that time we’ve shared our deep commitments to our community, recognizing what we can do to make it better. Arlene’s perspective has always been, “If you don’t like what’s happening around you, don’t just complain. Participate in the process.” Arlene has my vote because she’s done just that.

There are few people who understand the dynamics of this island, including the comprehensive plan land use guidelines and regulatory drivers, as well as Arlene. She’s interested in that stuff, which is hard for many of us to grasp. And I respect her enormously for her endless time and dedication on behalf of the city utility ratepayers.

We need Arlene’s common sense perspectives and values on council because she truly cares about the bottom line, about efficiency and effectiveness and getting the most for the taxpayer dollar. Arlene listens. Arlene cares deeply about preserving and protecting the Bainbridge we’ve all come to know and love.

My informed vote is for Arlene Buetow for city council.
