Vote for Bob Celski in November | Letter

I have been a business owner in Federal Way for over 33 years, with the pleasure of helping many families that make up this wonderful community.

I have seen many changes in the city over those years, and driving throughout the city the other day, I noticed the many recent and current projects in and around town improving our roads, residential units and businesses.

This observation has led me to offer my voice on behalf of a Federal Way neighbor, friend and business client I have known for over 28 years: Bob Celski. Bob is running to remain on the Federal Way City Council, and I am encouraging his support.

I have the pleasure of knowing, understanding and witnessing his insight and devotion to Federal Way where we both have raised our families, run our respective businesses as well as Bob Celski’s past service to the Federal Way City Council.

I know firsthand the efforts that Bob has put into the city he loves so much while serving as a council member and could not help but think of him as I toured the city and realized the very positive direction Federal Way is heading. I thought of the many conversations we have had of his vision for the downtown development, relief from the big-city traffic, now a result of our growth, and the security and safety of the citizens. I sense a positive movement in those directions.

I am fully aware that Bob Celski is just one member of the council and the positive direction is a reflection of the complete body of members.

I encourage the residents of Federal Way to take a good look at the exciting things happening to Federal Way that I saw going on around our city and to keep the positive momentum going by supporting to keep Bob Celski a part of the Federal Way City Council.

M. Irving Cisco, Federal Way
