Kirkland community needs Jessica Greenway's wisdom on council | LETTER

We need to make sure that Jessica Greenway remains as a Kirkland City Council member, one who clearly represents ALL of us.
With her depth of experience in Kirkland affairs, not only on council but prior to that as a Planning Commissioner, Parks Board chairperson, and founder of the South Rose Hill/Bridle Trails Neighborhood Association, she brings a broad perspective and deep understanding of Kirkland’s issues and history.
Equally important, she is the one person on council who stands out as a person who shows up, asks questions, listens and responds.
As a member of the Norkirk Neighborhood Association Board, I feel that citizens should know how much Jessica does for our neighborhoods — things big and small.
She is present at many more neighborhood meetings than any other council member, she volunteers to maintain one of our traffic circles and helps others to do so, she always contributes when there is a project that needs funding or volunteers, and most significantly she is THERE to hear citizens' concerns.
She brings a balance to council as a person with a strong financial background and concern for keeping Kirkland’s economy strong, but who also cares about the average neighbor and truly shows up to stay informed and understand the concerns of all Kirkland’s citizens.
Please re-elect Jessica Greenway - we need her wisdom and caring on council.
Janet Pruitt, Norkirk Neighborhood
