Dear Friends,

Here’s the key quote:

Knitting those areas into the city poses challenges that will require enthusiasm and deft political handling. Toby Nixon, who is challenging the Position 4 incumbent, brings both. The Kingsgate resident worked for the annexation as co-chair of Citizens for One Kirkland; incumbent Jessica Greenway was the lone council vote against annexation.

Nixon is a seasoned leader with extensive local and statewide connections as a former state representative, former fire district commissioner, chairman of the Kirkland Ethics Task Force and president of the Washington Coalition of Open Government.

Please share this with your friends and neighbors in Kirkland!

Best regards,

-- Toby
