Moore has done a lot to clean up city

I want to give a shout out to Martin Moore, who’s running for the City Council in position 6. I recently learned that my uncle, who taught in the Sumner School District, was Martin’s first teacher after he came to America from Bulgaria, so I started talking with the council member about the issues in our city, especially public safety issues.

I like Martin Moore’s no-nonsense, common-sense approach to crime, homelessness and drugs in our community. Pacific Highway and 312th Street had been an eyesore for some time, with homelessness, drug-dealing and trash, and every time I drove through it with my kids, I wondered if there’d be stray bullets. Martin Moore was instrumental in getting that intersection cleaned up, and the improvement is striking. I know Federal Way’s issues are going to require time to totally solve, but I very much appreciate that Martin addressed that hot spot.

I also attended the City Council meeting covering “safe injection sites” in King County, and I loved his passionate advocacy for Federal Way and against our city being a dump site for county projects. I decided to wave a sign supporting Martin Moore, and I conversed with him and learned he’s a man of integrity and true passion for Federal Way. He puts time into finding workable, non-enabling solutions and into making improvements in our city that make it a safer place, and we’ll see even more positive changes with Martin Moore continuing to serve on the City Council.

On a final note, a big thank you to Martin Moore for the sanitizer wipes at the entrance of Safeway on 320th.
