Dear Jimmy,

I wanted to write you personally and I hope you take the time to read and consider my letter.

This letter is in support of Nancy Tosta as our next mayor of Burien. She is currently Deputy Mayor, the most experienced, and the most deserving. She was THE most diligent, and most prepared member of the council at every meeting. I don’t question that your heart is in the right place. I went door to door for you; I voted for you; I support you. But not as our next Mayor. What makes the most sense is that you two work together and make a dynamite team – Not to start the new term for three new councilmembers in a disrespectful (to Nancy Tosta) and non-unified way. You have never served Burien before; why does it make sense that you start off as Mayor of our city?

I urge you to re-consider your decision and explain to your supporters that for the above reasons, you will be showing respect, humility, – and nominate Nancy Tosta for Mayor. It would be THE stellar way to start your first (of many) terms as a city councilmember of Burien. Together, in a unified, progressive front, you all can make Burien brilliant!

Sybil Davis
