Johnson deserves a chance to serve on Federal Way City Council

I recently had a chance to meet Federal Way City Council candidate Jesse Johnson at the annual “Life After High School” event at Federal Way High School. After meeting him, I learned that he has a strong character, a professional demeanor and a positive attitude. My assessment was backed up and affirmed after meeting his fiancee, his father and his little brother. He is eager to serve the Federal Way community; with his energy, he earned my vote. It was a no-brainer for me. To the doubters: Why not give him a chance to demonstrate his leadership skills for our city?
