Pascal is an accessible, honest and a dedicated public servant | Letter

Jon Pascal is the right choice for Kirkland City Council Pos. 7. He cares about the quality of our community with a focus on preserving/improving our neighborhoods.

Jon was an active member in the Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance as they worked to acquire public open space and to improve public safety with the Juanita Drive project. As chair of council’s parks committee, he supported the acquisition of additional park land for McAuliffe Park. Jon was chair of Kirkland Alliance of Neighborhoods before being chosen to fill a vacated spot on City Council.

Currently, I am working with Jon with the Friends of Juanita Beach, supporting the effort to build a new bathhouse, picnic shelters and other improvements at Juanita Beach. I find Jon accessible, honest and a dedicated public servant.

And he is a transportation guru. Let’s keep Jon on Kirkland City Council.

Karen Lightfeldt,
