Honda right choice for mayor | Letter

Susan Honda possesses vision and leadership. Her popularity (three-time award winner) is an indication of public support.

Susan Honda possesses an analytical mind. She knows what she does not know. A professional with experience (like Ken Nyberg) served us well. She knows when to seek out the best administrator we can find (not rewarded political supporters “sucking up” to the boss). Sound familiar?

Susan Honda claims credit for what she actually does. As a true “watch dog” of city funds, she questions what needs to be questioned. Are we having continued “moratoriums” because of poor planning and “crisis management? What is a planning commission for? Susan Honda knows.

Did DaVita come to Federal Way because of lobbying efforts from the present administration or because a commercial real estate firm (a private firm) brought them here because Federal Way had the available office space and more friendly business climate?

Where was the lobby effort before the Federal Aviation Administration regional office relocated to Des Moines and not Federal Way?

Can anyone give us the Federal Way address for the University of Washington (Jim Ferrell’s alma matter)? According to recent press releases, even Auburn has more going on than Federal Way.

Susan Honda’s municipal leadership experience will help get us “on the map.”

How many times do we have to build and rebuild a park in the down town? Susan knows.

Health care changes? Susan Honda is a retired registered nurse and actively involved in caring for families, children and services. She works “across the aisle” to make them happen through vision and leadership.

These are but a few of the reasons we are supporting Susan Honda for mayor. It is time for a positive change throughout our great city. We cannot afford to go “back words” for four more years under the present leadership. That direction will not make Federal Way a better place to “live, work, and play.”
