Recently Yarrow Bay/Oak Pointe spent money on a favor for the Mayor to file a lawsuit against the city of Black Diamond, which she was glad about. Since when does a mayor welcome a lawsuit against her own city?
This week I decided to go to a local coffee shop and give the establishment money to buy coffee for any police officers who might show up that day.
The holidays are here, even if we are not ready for them. A familiar sight will be the Salvation Army bell ringers at various locations around our community.
There will be some who will criticize and/or be annoyed by these views because they are worn out by the politics. They will say that it is too divisive to put political views out there.
I think the post-election analysis is very telling: apparently the “Silent Majority” in America had finally had enough and Trump (granted not the best solution) managed to get them riled up enough to stand up and start to roar.
As you know, recently we elected Donald J. Trump as our 45th president. Donald is a Republican and this signifies a big swing in the government from Democratic to Republican.
Council members (Pat)Pepper, (Brian) Weber and (Erika) Morgan are at it again, this time both violating labor law and expressing disrespect for our Black Diamond Police Department.
I am writing this in favor of the Kent School District Capital Improvement andSchool Construction Bond. As a parent of a high school student who has been inKent schools since kindergarten, I have seen my son and his friends grow andlearn from a community of dedicated educational professionals.
There have been no TV ads about voting for U.S. Supreme Court Justices. So how can you “vote” for these important keepers of justice? The next president will appoint at least one, maybe three, justices. Their decisions will influence the course of our nation for decades – long after the current presidential candidates are gone.
I am writing in support of the 2016 Kent School District Bond. If the measure passes, all schools in the Covington area will see needed improvements with the largest of course being a new Covington Elementary School designed to serve the growing Covington community.
Black Diamond didn’t need reform before the Save Black Diamond council members (Brian) Weber and (Pat) Pepper were elected, but Black Diamond needs it now!
I read letter published on March 10 from D. Phillip Miller complaining of our representatives (Jay Rodne, Chad Magendanz) actions to reverse initiative 594. I was compelled after reading this to offer opposing opinion supporting these brave legislators.
Voting on the Maple Valley Parks Bond is like buying a new car. The dealership shows me a shiny new car with all of the bells and whistles. Then, they give me the bad news that this particular car can only be purchased as a package deal.
To the Black Diamond community, we thank you. Our food bank has never been so full, which means we can continue to serve anyone who needs food. We have also been able to give out more gas vouchers, Puget Sound Energy assistance, and so much other emergency assistance.
Much emotion and concerted effort has gone into political posturing and lawsuits by citizens of Black Diamond who seem to be in a panic over our master planned development.
It is understandable that the candidates who lost last year’s landslide election in Black Diamond would be disappointed, but it is wrong for them to try to derail and disrupt the will of the voters.
