Transparent government at its best | Letter

I learned at the special Lakehaven commissioners meeting held Nov. 18 that those Lakehaven customers who pay Pierce County and Metro King County for sewer service are not charged twice for wastewater treatment.

It is true that the Metro King County sewer rates are double Lakehaven rates and that issue still needs to be addressed when the contract with Metro ends in 2024.

Congratulations to my election opponent, Don Miller. Thank you to all my campaign supporters on both sides of the aisle, The Mirror for fair and positive press coverage, the excellent staff at Lakehaven, and the commissioners who are receptive and listen to public comments at every meeting. This is transparent local government at its best.

Marie-Anne Harkness, Lakehaven commissioner candidate
