Federal Way teacher votes for Freeman | Letters
October 26, 2012 · Updated 12:28 PM
My name is Kim Edwards and I am a teacher at Lakota Middle School and I live in Federal Way.
Normally, I don't do this, but I understand that this is a unique period for the 30th District and therefore makes it an important election.
As a teacher in my community, I know that Roger Freeman will be a champion for not just our children but for our educational system. As an attorney, I can tell you that you can count on him to find the root of the problems and address them through public policy. Federal Way City Councilman Freeman will work to lower the dropout rate, engage young people to stay in school, and give them the power to dream endlessly. Additionally, he will build coalitions with students, parents, teachers and our community to engage families to participate in their school activities.
As a PTA dad, he understands how critical it is to be involved. That's why he is involved in his children's school activities at Adelaide Elementary and Lakota Middle School. He will not only be a state representative, but he will be a role model for our kids and young adults in our community.
Because he authentically works for the people, City Councilman Roger Freeman knows what representation really means. He's represented families and has worked to win battles in the courtroom. His experience in negotiating with opposing sides, such as with prosecutors in the courtroom, is invaluable. He will bring these skills to Olympia to fight for a strong educational system and advocate for working families.
I am asking you to vote for Roger Freeman for state representative position 2 and turn in your ballots no later than Nov. 6.
Kim Edwards, Federal Way
