Letters to the Editor

Vote for Lester’s energy, vision | Letters | Sept. 25

I would like to voice my support for Debbi Lester for Bainbridge Island City Council.

While I know of her active participation in countless island activities, I have personally experienced her effectiveness in energizing and engaging her fellow islanders around community gardening efforts.

The community garden project at Island Terrace Apartments is a wonderful example of Debbi’s vision, leadership and collaborative approach to projects.

I believe she would bring this same approach to the council and provide thoughtful and reflective governance.

Her attention to issues big and small – from working with the state ferry system to weeding traffic islands on Madison Avenue – demonstrates Debbi’s commitment to the quality of island living.

Debbi appreciates meaningful dialogue as a means to finding solutions to our common problems. Debbi is reasonable, approachable, effective and, hey, funny. Our city government needs leaders like her.
