Blake sees both sides of situation

After reviewing both candidates for Snohomish County Council seat in District 1, my bet is on Bill Blake. I know both candidates and have found Bill to understand what people want, and make things happen. He reminds me of what is needed in our federal government, someone who sees both sides of a situation. His challenger talking about cutting through red tape doesn’t solve anything. Sure jobs are needed, but any company or government that grows unsustainable becomes just that. Bill Blake knows how to keep an eye on the environment around him while thinking about middle class American jobs. He has my vote.
