LETTER: Former City Council Candidate Ed Dacy Endorses Three Candidates
I have never before endorsed a candidate for Burien City Council, but since my loss in this years primary I have had a number of people urging me to endorse candidates. I have been closely following Burien City Council for years. I have given these endorsements a great deal of thought and decided that I can endorse candidates for all three positions. I did not make my decision based on any one issue, in fact I know I disagree on one issue or another with all of these candidates, but made the decision based on their overall qualifications.
For position 2 I am endorsing GREGG DUFF. I like his support of economic development, parks and sidewalks. He will make a good member of the council.
For position 4 I am endorsing GORDON SHAW. He has not been afraid to be the lone voice in opposition to proposals that have come before the Council. Many times his opposition was shown to be well founded as evidence by the majority of the Council agreeing with him in the end.
His opposition to the Shoreline Master Plan that came to the Council from the staff and Planning Commission is a recent example of being a strong voice supporting common sense. It would be a tragedy to lose him as a council member.
For position 6 I am endorsing GERALD ROBISON. I have seen many council members start on the Council. Though I was doubtful at first, he impressed me from day one with his understanding of the issues that have come before the Council. He has shown himself to be MOST qualified for the job as City Council member.
