I’m writing as I’m appalled by the calumny toward Nicolas Duchastel De Montrouge, heard during the city council meeting last week.

I’ve known Nicolas since moving in the Puget Sound area in 2005. He and his family welcomed our family as true friends from the first time we met.

I’ve always admired Nicolas’ passion for politics at every level, and he’s been key to improving my understanding of the American political system.

He’s the only person I know who’s passionate enough about the impact of local politics to our communities that he took on running for a seat in his town last year.

Nicolas is extremely honest and caring. His personal and work ethics are second to none, and he truly respects the rule of law. It makes me very sad to hear such false and damaging statements made against him.
