Sam Low deserves support for House seat in 39th district

Snohomish County Councilman Sam Low has announced that he is running for a Washington state House seat in the 39th Legislative District (“GOP duel: County Councilman Sam Low to challenge Rep. Robert Sutherland,” The Herald, Jan. 9). I believe Sam is a great candidate for this position. I have known Sam for eight years and served with him on the Lake Stevens City Council.

Sam is a public official with integrity, respect and honor. Sam will defend our state constitution and the rule-of-law. Sam has always advocated for respect between opposing positions, treated the people with dignity and encouraged a civil discourse. Sam believes in collaboration regarding legislation, working to find common ground on issues to the betterment of the people he represents.

Sam believes strongly that the first job of any elected official is keeping the community safe and secure. He has earned the respect and support of local law enforcement. Sam is a great candidate who is head and shoulders above any other candidates in terms of experience, character, and dedication to the public.
