Re: “Our endorsements in Puyallup City Council races” (editorial, 10-17).

I hope that the citizens of Puyallup will closely read the qualifications of the candidates who are running for City Council seats. I was please to see The News Tribune editorial board got the selection right for District 1 (John Hopkins).

Its picks for District 2 and 3 seem to have been based more on the candidates being female then their qualifications for council seats, especially since the editorial noted that the candidates are “trying to win entry into what is now an all-male club.”
