James Whitfield’s article, “Time for us all to help decide what we want for the Eastside," coincides very appropriately with the recent elections.
Community Events, November 2015
Friends of Lake Sammamish State Park would like to thank the Greater Issaquah Chamber of Commerce for holding a meet-and-greet and fundraiser in support of the all-access playground at Sunset Beach at the state park on Oct. 22.
I applaud Leadership Eastside CEO James Whitfield, noting that we all need a seat at the table regarding the fate of the Eastside. For many of us though, we’ve been at the table numerous times, provided our input through public process with the same result: citizen input is ignored.
We are faced with an important choice in this upcoming local election. We can re-elect the same council members who seem to reside in the deep pockets of the developers, or we can elect council members with backbone and integrity who are not afraid to stand up and protect the character of Sammamish, the environment, and our opinions.
I find myself evaluating the candidates for Sammamish City Council primarily for their willingness to seek balance, moderation and openness in their decisions.
