Celski’s experience brings value to council

If you haven’t noticed, we have elections going on in Federal Way.

As I look at the choices for City Council Position 2, it amplifies how important of a decision that we the voters hold in shaping the future of Federal Way.

Right now, Federal Way is approaching a crucial point in its growth and success as a city. It makes this election season even more valuable, and that’s why I support Councilmember Bob Celski for Federal Way City Council Position 2.

Councilman Celski’s long-standing ties to the community, willingness to serve and support for local programs are all amazing contributions he has brought, but the most important quality I feel is his experience. Experience is something you cannot purchase but must earn, and this is a trait that Mr Celski brings to the table that will help Federal Way continue achieving new opportunities.

Experience in both the military, business world and city government are invaluable to have when making tough decisions. Councilman Celski routinely makes these tough decisions and asks the tough questions when they need to be asked. Those are traits in a leader that I admire and I respect.

Integrity, honesty and leadership are the values I think of when I think of Councilman Celski, and I also feel these values are based in each of his actions, which is why I support the his campaign for Federal Way City Council Position 2.
