Elect Pamela Randolph
For Sammamish City Council, Position 3
One Community, Many Voices
What does One Community, Many Voices mean to me? It means building bridges within our community in order to understand and accept the diverse views we hold. My commitment to our community is to listen for understanding and to be respectful of varied points of view. My strongly held belief is that community members should feel comfortable voicing their views without fear of retaliation. I am running for the City Council to build bridges, reduce divisiveness, and promote respectful interactions. I will promote the One Community, Many Voices approach to governance while focusing on public safety, fiscal responsibility and plan development as outlined below.
