Mayor serves this community very well | Letters

We are writing to support Skip Priest. We’ve known Skip for almost 20 years and have always found him to be the utmost example of what a public servant should be and he has always served this community very well. He has been a good friend not just to us but also to Federal Way and the whole 30th District. His leadership in helping to form Federal Way as a councilmember and then as a state representative and now as mayor has enabled us to be the great community that it is today.

Recent attempts to malign his character are just the sort of ugliness that give “politics” a bad name and further debase the reputation of Federal Way as a regional leader.

This city is full of wonderful community leaders, elected and appointed officials and citizens that care. We proudly endorse Skip’s re-election campaign and wish him well.

Karen and Tom Vander Ark, Federal Way
