JOIN THE CONVERSATION
In this Election so many of us voted for shared island community values, the result was a landslide for Val Tollefson, Wayne Roth and Roger Townsend !
We celebrated on Tuesday night, along with many of you, because we worked hard to elect the kind of City Council members we need.
We wanted more Council members who will represent the community, listen to all of us, find common ground and set policy – not pursue predetermined agendas.
We look forward to the day very soon when the professional staff of COBI get to work for all of us, with respectful, thoughtful, and responsible Council members setting a positive, clear direction for their work. We anticipate that City staff will respond positively with the support and guidance of their - and our - City Manager.
We appreciate the kind words of thanks from so many of you, but our role was modest. We are only getting started, we have much to do, going forward to support efforts to preserve the quality of life on Bainbridge that we cherish.
