    And yet another slate of hopeful and returning ‘civil minded’ citizens choose to become involved in the Burien City tradition of electing liberal generally non performing mostly self interest persons with a personal agenda….”and the beat goes on”…
    There are some notable exceptions now in office,,,thanks Bob, Lucy and
    Sometimes some one else with common sense…

    Which candidates are wanting to improve Burien and its schools who don’t like being a sanctuary City who harbors and protects illegals with Cartel members who have broken our laws and some who brought drugs .
    We need candidates who are working for its citizens not foreigners who disrespect America and its laws and were given special. rights by breaking our laws..
    We need a cleaned up city safe for its citizens .,

  5. Terri Lindeke says:

    All of the candidates were invited. This is an opportunity to meet with candidates running for office in Burien.

    Please come and talk to them about the issues that concern you.
