LETTER: Former Burien City Council candidate makes endorsement
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The B-Town Blog nor its staff:]
It is said that “brevity is the soul of wit”. This, therefore, will be direct.
As one of the vanquished during the recent primary, I wish to thank all of the people who cast their ballot for me. To those who worked so hard on my campaign, I will be forever grateful.
The issue now is the future of Burien as it passes through a challenging time of difficult decision-making and change. The next city council will, as they say, “hit the ground running”. Much of Burien’s future will be determined by council decisions within the first few months of the new year.
It is for this reason that I would ask my supporters to cast their ballot for Steve Armstrong in Position 7. Steve’s business history and his professional negotiating experience will be an enormous asset on the next council.
This is not to diminish the character of the other candidate, Joey Martinez. I found him to be a gentleman through personal experiences on the primary campaign trail. Although Joey and I differ on most issues, my opinion is that Joey is just not ready for the city council.
Again, a big thank you to all those who supported me and I encourage all citizens of Burien to vote – for position 7, I am voting Steve Armstrong.
Former candidate Position 7
