Who are you going to vote for Seattle City Council District 1? To date, nine candidates have joined the race to replace retiring Council Member Tom Rasmussen coveted seated. This past week we asked the candidates two questions:
What are the top two issues in West Seattle that are most important to you?
What do you have that your competitors do not?
Here is a summary of how each candidate responded to the questions.
Montoure’s two main issues are development and public safety.
“Impacts of development and assuring that public investment in our infrastructure keeps pace with private investment in our communities [are important to,” Montoure said.
Montoure also said that crime and public safety are among his top concerns.
West Seattle needs a 24/7 emergency medical facility, he believes, especially given the high number of elderly people, children and families who live in the area.
What makes Montoure the best candidate?
“I have a proven record of volunteer civic involvement,” he said. “I remain vested in our local economy and provide jobs in our community.”More ›
