George Dill, my late husband, had vision for the city of Puyallup. Sadly, he was unable to see it through.

I had high hopes that his appointed fill-in (Ms. Martineau) would continue his dream, but sadly she has lacked vision and has been more of a follower than a leader.

I’ve taken an active interest in the upcoming election and feel that either of the candidates would be a win for District 1 and the city of Puyallup.

Further, I’ve been surprised by at-large candidate Steve Vermillion. In talking and meeting with Mr. Vermillion, I see characteristics of Dill in him. He is easy to talk to and listens, then calls back with answers rather than passing me off.

He values giving the people a voice and not wasting money on things like renting space to hold court. I believe Dill would have agreed with me in supporting Steve Vermillion.
