Endorsement for Diana Noble-Gulliford | Election letters

I feel that there is a limited watershed of opportunity to find someone who will bring a fresh approach to the city council’s future.

Someone is needed who has a visionary perspective and that can add another chapter to the life of the city council.

Diana Noble-Gulliford has the best skills, leadership and background to move the city forward. With your vote, there are many things she can accomplish that will benefit Federal Way citizens.

Her campaign is not about prestige and forwarding personal goals for a higher office.

It is about representing and implementing policies that will benefit Federal Way citizens.

Diana’s priorities for Federal Way include:

• Retaining and attracting new businesses

• Providing policies for long-term economic development

• Working toward a clear vision for a vibrant downtown

• Expanding the Safe Neighborhood and Safe City Program

• Supporting a sustainable budget with no new taxes

• Establishing community festivals and a veterans tribute/memorial

• Maintaining the current level of police officers or higher

• Promoting light rail and more transit for Federal Way

• Supporting safe school zones and pedestrian crossings

• Promoting volunteerism and the positive attributes of Federal Way

With your vote, there are many alternatives that she can do as a representative of her constituents and being available for them to express their concerns. Diana wants to know your vision of the city.

She wants to energize the city of Federal Way not only economically, but its important arts and cultural scene.

This can be done by providing accessibility to business and their concerns, promoting community events, etc. Diana wants our local residents to be proud of our beautiful area and resources.

Let’s turn our city around from a novelty community between Seattle and Tacoma to a passionate and vigorous area for our people. Diana has a large grasp of Federal Way’s history (examples: a past president of the Historical Society of Federal Way, a Planning Commissioner, current member of the Land Use Committee, etc.) Plus she has the drive and momentum to focus on future excellence that would benefit her constituents.

Because of her background and experience, she can help keep our goals on track. Her work has only just begun, and she looks forward to meeting with voters to accomplish these goals.

Diana will tackle the tough issues and challenges with a strong mindset, fairness and creativity. She is capable of lifting our city to a new level. She will be a key component in making decisions that will affect our lives as Federal Way citizens.

Please consider your vote to Diana. She is a knowledgable leader who has a passion for the city and wants to make sure it is running in the right direction. Her work on the council should not be taken lightly. Diana is seriously representing our voters and I encourage people to vote for her.

Maureen Hathaway, Federal Way
