PUYALLUP: City Council needs fresh voices

The News Tribune editorial board got it right when it endorsed Heather Shadko and Julie Door for Puyallup City Council (editorial, 10-17).

I would have liked to see Corry Glucoft endorsed as well for the District 1 council position.

The editorial did note that her opponent consistently aligns himself with council members Rick Hansen, John Knutsen and Steve Vermillion. This foursome has created a troublesome majority, a lot of dissension and uncivilized behavior on the council.

Glucoft would bring a fresh voice to the council, with new ideas and vision for the city. The TNT referred to Glucoft as a “newcomer” and that she is, but she is just exactly what the council needs. Someone who has no previous agenda, someone who is not aligned with any council members past or present and someone who would bring much-needed diversity to the Puyallup City Council.

My vote, and I hope yours, is going to Glucoft.
