Vote for Falcone | Letter

I am writing to endorse Amy Falcone enthusiastically for Kirkland City Council Pos. 6.

Amy is a well-respected and effective leader in the community, serving for the past several years on the board of the Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance, as a PTA president and legislative advocacy chair, and as a member of Kirkland’s Human Services Commission.

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Amy on the Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance board; she is organized, collaborative, diligent and very effective. Working with the city, Amy has secured funding for a variety of pedestrian safety projects on Finn Hill. She has also planned a variety of large events to enhance the sense of community in our neighborhood. She is a problem solver, an astute listener and a persuasive advocate for under-represented groups in Kirkland. She is passionate about affordable housing, public safety and ensuring Kirkland makes investments now that will benefit our city in the future.

She will be a superb representative of Kirkland’s citizens on the City Council.
