Dear Editor,

By now, many residents of Woodinville have seen handwritten signs around town announcing a new website, Bad4Woodinville.com. We're writing to explain why our group took the very serious step of assembling shortcomings of sitting city council members. 

Until three years ago, the city council's priorities were the people who live here and the land we live on. Those priorities are no longer in evidence. Recent city council votes have been so unsupportive and unsympathetic toward residents that we've concluded, with regret, that it would be irresponsible to stay silent. 

Bad4Woodinville.com provides links to video clips of current city council members in action, in their own words. It also contains links to lawsuits that taxpayers are paying legal fees for, campaign finance complaints, newspaper articles, and letters to the editor. 

With ballots arriving in the mail in the next few days, we urge readers to view the videos on the website and review the linked information. We believe that Woodinville deserves a better city council than the one currently in place, and we think you deserve a clear, bright light on the reasons why. 

Signed,

Susan Boundy-Sanders, Woodinville City Councilmember 

Paula Waters, former Woodinville City Councilmember 

Nicolas Duchastel de Montrouge, former Woodinville Planning Commissioner 

Linda Jenkins, Chair, 45th District Democrats 

Dave Williams, Immediate Past Chair, 45th District Democrats 

Kraig Peck, Chair, 45th District Democrats Endorsement Committee
