Erwin to keep ‘what is working’

I am supporting Rich Erwin for City Council.

Rich Erwin shares my values and those of many other seniors as well. He wants to keep in place on Mercer Island what is working, make improvements where we must and protect what makes our Island a safe and attractive place for seniors to live.

Rich is concerned about the same things we are. He does not want any Island resident to be taxed out of their homes and has committed to review all budget proposals for their impact on seniors. Because he cares about the need for safety in our homes, Rich promoted an updated solicitor law, which seeks to stop strangers from showing up at our doors uninvited. And to make the town center more accessible to seniors, Rich has proposed design improvements to our parking garages and more accessible transportation options to and from the town center.

Rich’s understanding of what matters to us, his fiscally conservative approach and commitment to protect and safeguard Island seniors, is why I believe Rich Erwin deserves your support, too.
