U.S. REPRESENTATIVE

When I read Ronald Long’s letter about feeling neutral about Suzan DelBene, I was surprised. She has been a great representative of our District. She spends a great deal of time attending local meetings, listening to local concerns, and then votes to support our District businesses: farming in Sammamish Valley; incorporated Woodinville’s need for hotels, which wouldn’t encroach on the Valley; educational needs; roads; traffic; environmental protection; and just about all else. The problem is that she is a very hard worker and her campaign has not done enough to publicize her very active involvement in District issues. I have had many in depth chats with Suzan, and she is very smart, and really “gets” how to speak up in Congress about the things her District cares about.

HOST A STAYCATION

Don’t we all wish we could jet off to foreign lands from time to time and learn about new cultures or taste exotic foods? However, schedules and bank accounts can often set limitations on those adventures, so why not bring them into your own home? This summer, 68 students from China, France and Spain will be coming to the greater Woodinville area to take classes and learn about the American way of life. Families can take the idea of a staycation to a whole new level by bringing the world to them!

CAMP UNITY

I appreciated your coverage of the homeless camp at the Mary Cash Farm.  This issue was discussed in depth at the Upper Bear Creek Community meeting on Feb. 23. Jim Chan of Permitting explained why the Executive granted emergency status to Camp Unity, and detailed the County Agency’s decision to grant a temporary permit. Also, there were volunteers who had worked extensively with Camp Unity from the Methodist Church, who explained the volunteer supervision of overseeing the camp and that it was clean and well organized. They also explained that each homeless camp had its own sponsors and what happens in Seattle doesn’t pertain to the Eastside camps. The audience was encouraged to stop by and meet the homeless campers and hear their stories, as the park is still open to the public to use for dog walking and other enjoyments.
