Letters to the Editor

Support for candidate Koppang | Letters

I’m impressed with Mark Koppang, candidate for Federal Way City Council position 2. I remember Mark ran once before and that he took the high road by refusing to be drawn into the mire of what became a rather contentious race.

In my book that demonstrated character. And even today, he has maintained a neutral position on the controversy his opponent, the incumbent, is embroiled in.

I particularly admire and appreciate Mark’s spirit of volunteerism and his sincere interest in our city which is demonstrated by his deeds. Mark recruited a team for a tree-planting project at Celebration Park. He also ran a volunteer team at Sacajawea on Earth Day to clean up the park, and was a member of the Reach Out Federal Way homeless men’s winter shelter project. His work and contribution of many hours through Habit for Humanity on the ongoing improvement project at Westway in Federal Way is most commendable. It’s refreshing to see a candidate, like Mark, who embodies a strong character, high personal values, and sincere interest in our city.

Jess Salazar, Federal Way
