Kelly Maloney's college idea will help economy | Election letters

As virtually a lifetime resident of Federal Way, I've seen ideas come and go to improve our community as well as our economy.

Several additions have helped build community (the King County Aquatic Center, Federal Way Community Center, Celebration Park). I haven't heard an idea, however, that sounds as effective in helping our economy as Kelly Maloney's. Her plan is to bring a four-year private college to our city.

A college would generate jobs, bring a fresh culture to Federal Way and it would improve the lives of residents who attend by using their degrees to become higher wage earners.

Please consider voting for Kelly for Federal Way City Council position 2 so that she can bring this plan to fruition.

Erin Herringshaw, Federal Way
