I am excited about Puyallup’s upcoming election, especially in the clear choice between Steve Vermillion and Nicole Martineau. I do not appreciate her views on what she sees for Puyallup’s future.
One issue is her idea of cramming more “cottages” downtown. I own and live in a condo downtown where we have one parking space per unit along with our garage. So little parking for the owners and their guests/family at our condos has caused nothing but problems and friction between us all.
I know firsthand how stupid it is to pile units so close together. Calling them “cottages” doesn’t change what they become – a series of problems that can’t be solved.
I urge all young adults in our town to really look at Vermillion’s experience, ideas, accomplishments and vision. I believe he will bring solutions to some of our serious problems and not create more problems due to inexperience. Martineau’s few hours in a classroom as a teacher aide and limited work experience certainly do not in any way qualify her to make sound business decisions for our city.
I am putting my vote and future on Vermillion.
