This morning I witnessed a beautiful gesture. Along 228th I saw Christie gathering her campaign signs to help Sammamish clean. Her opponent’s placards were still visible, a reminder to
a campaign that was ugly and unfair at times.
Thank you Christie for a good campaign and a good gesture.
Congratulations Ken “Tired of traffic?” Gamlin, now it’s your turn. Can we now expect reduced traffic and congestion in the coming year. Got a plan? Time to share it.
