Johnson has necessary tools to serve on council | Letter

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting Jesse early this year and was very impressed with his passion to want to make a difference in the lives of the citizens of Federal Way. He really seems to care about the youth in our community and wants to be a positive influence for them as they decide which path to take in life. I own a business in the city and have a profound interest in how small businesses can play a part and contribute to the growth and development of our city. I also believe we need an aggressive leader who will be an advocate for our business interests, and who has the courage to speak up for our rights as business owners. I believe Jesse has the tools and motivation to meet these challenges and many others that this city faces, and will work with other city officials tirelessly to resolve issues and develop new ideas to improve how we do business.
