LETTER: A Note From Debi Wagner, Candidate For City Council Pos. #6
Most citizens in Burien are not aware of my candidacy because I did not have to run in the Primary Election. I am running for Position 6 of the Burien City Council. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. In recommending me for the city council, Burien’s founding First Mayor Jhaveri said:
“I have known Debi for many years, as a passionate and dedicated Community Leader, working in the areas of Environment, Education, Fiscal Policies, Children Causes, and Sustainability. As a wife, mother, and champion of local issues, she has demonstrated her leadership qualities of vision, integrity, diplomacy, communication, coordination, accountability, and transparency.”
I have lived and worked in the area nearly all my life and all of my 7 children attended Highline schools. My husband and I chose this community to raise our family because of the safe small town atmosphere. As a school volunteer, employee and union worker at a local business, I am concerned about Burien’s future. I feel that some council members have been unresponsive to citizen concerns regarding some past and upcoming decisions. I intend to listen and represent people not special interests.
I have concerns about further annexations by the City of Burien due to Burien’s current economic challenges. I favor Burien’s small town atmosphere and believe Burien may be growing itself too fast. Becoming a more attractive and desirable place people want to live in, visit and move into is more important to me. Alternative transportation, public market, parks, walking, biking, trails, arts, entertainment are desirable assets the city could expand. I have been an outspoken environmental advocate regarding the noise, air and water pollution problems produced by airport operations.
Thank you for your support, and please be sure to vote on November 8th.
– Debi Wagner
