Supports Low for mayor of Friday Harbor | Letter to the Editor

I gotta do this. Particularly after last night's council meeting in which, in my opinion, town residents just got to spend $300,000 more than they needed to. Check out the minutes of the meeting.

Robert Low has his hat in the ring for mayor. I can't think of a better, more informed, more qualified person to head up the town. I know. I don't live in town, but those who read this must understand that what goes on in town affects us all.

Low, a long-time resident, has been closely associated with the Town as an employee and fire chief who showed his administrator skills during the "Big Fire." He serves as a commissioner on the Hospital Board and is an active EMT. Not to mention county fire marshal. He knows the ins and the outs of service to his community and asks now for the opportunity to serve the town again.

Anyone who knows him knows he is a careful listener. Not prone to make knee jerk or unconsidered decisions. They also know him as one to not be afraid to make the hard decisions and stand by 'em. I appreciate that. With Bob, you always feel you have been listened to and what you have to say is important.

I hope town folks take the time to call or e-mail Bob. You'd see the same qualities I see from the moment you first meet him. He's available. Give him a call.
