Colloaborative approach needed | Letters | Oct. 23

Voters on Bainbridge Island have an opportunity to elect an excellent candidate, Tim Jacobsen, for City Council. With the complex budget challenges we face, we need someone with his strong financial and managerial background.

The council and the community would benefit greatly from his 30 years of experience as a CPA and business owner.

One of the qualities that most impresses us about Tim is his commitment to bring a cooperative and collaborative approach to the decision-making process. He takes the time to truly listen and we feel he would set a respectful and positive new tone to the council.

He cares deeply about this community and has taken leadership roles in community organizations serving as president of the Boys & Girls Club and chair of the city’s Salary Commission. He is bright and articulate, and would add a very pragmatic and rational voice to the council.

We encourage you to join us in voting for Tim for City Council.
