Don't re-elect elusive Somers
The project I had in mind was a much needed recreational vehicle park east of Monroe on U.S. 2. I contacted many of the business owners and residents between Monroe and Steven's Pass, most of whom had hoped this type of facility would become available in the area. When I contacted the tourism bureau and the Monroe Chamber of Commerce, they enthusiastically endorsed the idea. They realized that an RV park would bring much needed tourist dollars to the businesses of the area as well as providing jobs. Several residents told me that they were awakened from their sleep by tourists knocking on their doors asking if they could park their recreational vehicles in their yard.
It is important to elect a councilman who is sensitive to the differing needs of his constituents, and who would be willing to work in cooperation with the chamber of commerce and the tourism bureau.
Dave Somers is not that man.
