Wong willing to confront difficult issues

We are pleased to write in support of Benson Wong and encourage our Mercer Island neighbors to vote to make him a member of the Mercer Island City Council. Having children the same ages as the Wongs, our families have been friends for almost 25 years. We grew up together through Mercer Island’s schools and clubs. In addition, we have known the Wongs at least that long professionally as part of the Northwest legal community.

Benson has always been and continues to be committed to public service. He values Mercer Island as a vibrant and healthy neighborhood and has always worked to maintain those values. He is not content to sit back and passively watch our Island change, but rather is a true planner who thinks ahead and advocates for the solution that is best for all of us. He is a great team player who is willing to confront difficult issues and work with his colleagues to find the common ground and make those solutions a reality, assuring that our community is always a great place to live.

For those who are not familiar with Benson, go to his website at http://electbensonwong.com and his Facebook page at Benson Wong for City Council. See for yourself why Benson is the best choice for the job, and vote for him this election.

Catherine and David Myre
