Letters to the Editor

Bill Blake deserves your vote | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

When considering your vote for County Council District 1, consider this: Bill Blake is an absolutely genuine article. I’ve never met anyone so sincere in the simple and unpolluted wish to help his district.

Bill is not a polished politician. His hand-painted banners and scruffy beard point to a different kind of candidate than we’re used to. He speaks his mind, and is always truthful. If you want to know how Bill stands on an issue, ask him. If you want to know what kind of candidate, or more importantly what kind of man he is, talk to him for five minutes and you’ll know.

Bill will show fiscal responsibility. I happen to know that Bill made the posts his signs are stapled to from 2x4s he bought at Arlington Hardware and donated recycled wood scraps. He just couldn’t see wasting money when he could do the job himself. He will be just as careful with our tax dollars, encouraging prudence and thrift.

Bill knows District 1 and the important issues facing it. He’s a rural man who lives a rural life. He’s lived and worked in Snohomish County most of his life and many of the same issues your family faces here his family does as well. He will make sure the voice of North County is heard.

Bill has had a lengthy and decorated career. He isn’t in this to impress, or to gain a foothold for higher office. Bill just wants to help, period.
