LETTER | Oh, the righteous indignation!


A few Kirkland Reporter readers believe Bob Sternoff should not be re-elected because of "ethical lapses." Oh, the righteous indignation! It's unlikely these writers would be so incensed were their own candidate guilty of similar behavior.

Anyone who paid attention to the City Council at the time of the events will recall that the "debates" were polarized to the point of lacking civility, and quite likely immensely boring for those on the opposing side of the argument. Probably most of the Council would have preferred to be elsewhere doing something else.

I myself have found Bob Sternoff to be a rational, clear-thinking, responsible, approachable, helpful and principled City Councilman, with the best interests of Kirkland at heart. I look forward to his re-election.
