What Puyallup needs is a city council that works in partnership with its community. In order to get there, we need a change in both the tone and content of the conversation about city governance.
Julie Door, a city council candidate in District 3, is someone who can make that change.
As a retired captain of the Washington State Patrol, it has been a pleasure to serve as part of Door’s political campaign. I have come to know her as a person with the utmost integrity. She will work hard for her constituents to make sure they have a community that is safe, healthy, rich in heritage and focused on quality of life.
Door is a decision maker who gathers information, seeks input from a variety of sources and works to find solutions that are not just compromises but new solutions that incorporate many perspectives.
Door respects differences of opinion. When she makes decisions, she often asks, “Who is not at this table?” Then she seeks out that person or group to get their input before she moves forward.
I experienced that firsthand when Door sought me to ask for input on proposed legislation regarding unregulated halfway homes for sex offenders. What further impressed me was watching her stand up at a Puyallup City Council meeting and give credit to others for their hard work and assistance.
Make Julie Door the choice for Puyallup City Council, District 3, on Nov. 5.
