Letter: Topper is best for 49th District

Whenever I sit in traffic trying to cross the I-5 Bridge, I think of Monica Stonier and her vote against the state transportation funding package while she was representing the 17th District in Olympia.

Now that she has lost re-election in the 17th and parachuted into the 49th, she is continuing her lack of leadership by sowing the seeds of discord in our district. We need a true, principled, proven leader who supported the replacement of the I-5 Bridge, opposed the Tesoro-Savage oil terminal, and who can work with fellow Democrats as well as across the aisle. Alishia Topper, through her decade-long work for our community, privately and on the Vancouver City Council, is just such a person.
