Recent attack emails on Shortal should be taken with a grain of salt. Voting a guy out of office because he said other streets needed a sidewalk ahead of Mt Vernon Way is absurd. If that's the biggest issue you have with a council member over a five year period then you should be pleased.
Shortal supports public schools and youth sports. He is constantly involved in the community,supports non-profits, and is always a great volunteer for events around our city.
If you were on the fence on who to vote for, please jump over that fence and vote for a proven leader and volunteer in our community. District 1 needs representation that can work well with our current mayor and council, and Denny Shortal is that man.
Please forward a link to this blog post to friends in District 1, and please vote Tuesday for Denny Shortal.
