A vote for Pascal | Letter

In the race for Kirkland City Council Position #7, I am confident that Jon Pascal is the right choice.

As a Finn Hill Neighborhood Alliance board member, I have gotten to know Jon very well over the past few years. He worked tirelessly as a fellow board member to advocate for practical and impactful safety improvements for pedestrians and bicyclists in our community. In this role he leveraged his expertise as a transportation expert to work with the city to create the successful Kirkland Neighborhood Safety Program. This program, now in its fourth year, brings neighbors together to enhance the safety of our communities for pedestrians and bicyclists with dozens of local projects throughout the city, many of which focus on improving walk and bicycle routes for our children, so they have safe routes to school and other key destinations.

In his role on Kirkland City Council, he has continued to leverage his transportation expertise and passion for improving the safety of our transportation system through his leadership and involvement in the 100th Avenue NE corridor project and improvements to Juanita Drive. Jon is very approachable and responsive, always willing to meet with residents to hear and understand their concerns. I genuinely appreciate his approachability, and the passion and expertise that he brings to improving our community and continuing Kirkland’s tradition of being a safe, inclusive, livable and vibrant City.

I will proudly cast my vote for Jon Pascal for Kirkland City Council, and I encourage you to do so as well.
