Tolling I-90 will affect nearly everything we hold dear about our city.
Parents are attracted to Mercer Island for many reasons including great schools and a safe community.
I have been surprised to see the letters from the “establishment” on the Island stating that we need to keep the “ good old boys” network together and re-elect the incumbents.
I plan to vote YES on Initiative-522 this week, the ballot measure to label genetically engineered foods here in Washington State.
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.
I am compelled to voice my opinion publicly after attending the voters forum on Tuesday. I listened to current City Council members, Tana Senn and Dan Grausz, espouse their vision of transforming our town center into a nightlife destination and business hub. They epiphanized it as a “vibrant city.” I question if they listen to Mercer Island residents.
While I realize that during election season the truth gets stretched, the letter in the Sept. 25 Reporter attacking Council member Jane Meyer Brahm and me for our vote on the Legacy (former True Value site) project takes distortion of the facts to a new level.
Last week I received a letter that appeared to be official city business from Council members Bertlin and Senn. Upon opening this letter, I discovered it was a misleading piece of political advertisement, directed at me solely because of my gender.
Washington state has many attributes that attract new employers to our beautiful state. The challenge may be convincing them to stay here.

Perhaps the “lawmakers” need to go back to school instead of showing that they are clueless.
I read the announcement in the Reporter about plans to create a ‘Patriot Plaza’ at the VFW Hall. I think it is a wonderful idea to have a memorial to veterans.
It’s time to ban all fireworks on Mercer Island. Over the past week, many of us watched as locals purchase “Safe & Sane” fireworks near the post office.
I agree with Susan Dykstra regarding the light rail and why it does not work for her. For all her reasons and more, I would not use the light rail.
I am inspired and hopeful. I support background checks for all gun purchases.
No, I will not use light rail. No parking. No bus comes by my house. It would take three buses to get to just one of my downtown destinations.
On behalf of Kiwanis of Mercer Island, VFW Post #5760, and the Mercer Island Masonic Lodge, I would like to thank the City Council for their approval of our permit to sell safe and sane fireworks in celebration of the Fourth of July this year.
Reading about the Councilman and his dog reminded me of an incident last summer. I was walking past the children’s playground in Mercerdale Park and a large, unleashed dog jumped on me from behind.
Mercer Island has a good neighbor! Freshy’s Seafood Market allowed the Mercer Island Learning Lab parents to park in their lot while their children visited the care center patients.
Unfortunately, there are those who think this law applies to everyone except them. Voice control of your pet is not enough. Keep them leashed (it’s the law), unless they are in an approved off-leash area (there is one on the Island).
