LETTER: Master Builders Association Responds To Claims About Gordon Shaw
I am writing in response to a recent letter questioning City Council candidate Gordon Shaw’s contributors. The letter expresses concern over a contribution made by the Affordable Housing Council (AHC) on behalf of Shaw. As a point of clarification, the AHC is actually affiliated with the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, not the Building Industry Association of Washington, which only endorses legislative candidates and those running for statewide office.
The AHC supports candidates in King and Snohomish counties who support diverse, affordable housing for our community, regardless of party affiliation. For a complete list of AHC-endorsed candidates, see: http://www.masterbuildersinfo.com/index.cfm?/Members/Political-Action-Center/page/Endorsed-Candidates. For those interested in learning more about the Master Builders Association of King and Snohomish Counties, I invite you to visit: www.masterbuildersinfo.com.
More importantly, we encourage readers to look at Gordon Shaw’s qualifications and decide for themselves how to vote in this race. The AHC endorses Shaw because he understands the importance of housing in the community, cares deeply about Burien’s future and has demonstrated leadership on countless occasions throughout his service on the City Council.
