Candidates often talk, Hughes does | Letters

Every Friday night, the children of Orcas Island have a treat in store for them. County Councilman Rick Hughes and his wife Marlace organize a safe, fun night of roller skating. In the winter, there are few family activities.

As everyone knows, this time of year can be cold, dark and gloomy. Stepping into the warm, bright gym, you are greeted with hip-hop music, parents chatting, and exuberant kids skating by.

My brothers and I look forward to roller skating all year long. The Hughes have done the island community a great service. Roller skating is just one example of the public service done by Rick Hughes. Thank you, Rick, for preserving this fun, family tradition. Candidates often talk about giving back to the community, but you’re really doing it.
