Letter: Support Roberts for county council


The editorial “In Our View: Do homework on candidates before election” (The Columbian, Sept. 18) hit the mark but left out one important piece: Check the Washington Public Disclosure website to see who is funding candidates’ campaigns.

For example, Michele Belkot lists several $500 contributions from Donna and David Madore. Do we really want to return to anything resembling David Madore’s contentious time on the council? Or do we want to elect someone who is willing to work together with other council members to solve problems? Chartisha Roberts, with leadership and human resources experience in health care and transportation, has the professional background to do just that.
