I highly recommend Will Chen for the vacant position on the Edmonds City Council. Will Chen is a resident of Edmonds for 10 years and knows the city very much. He is also operating a small business, a CPA firm in Edmonds, for five years. And now he is ready to move forward to the next step and ready to serve the resident of Edmonds.
Edmonds is becoming a diverse community. According to the census, Edmonds has 8% Asian residents. As a minority resident and small business owner in Edmonds, I have witnessed so many difficult situations such as limited access to city services, police services, and so much more due to language barriers. As we all know, the population of the Greater Seattle Area is skyrocketing, more and more people are moving into Edmonds, and we are facing housing issues. HWY 99 is ideal for higher density of commercial and residential, but somehow it is like a forgotten part in the city. This is an excellent opportunity for city development.
I truly believe Will Chen would be an excellent candidate to the Edmonds City Council because he understand the issues we are facing, and he lives and operates a business in HWY 99 area. He is well connected to many other resident like us who have the same experience for the issues above. During the conversations with Will Chen, I feel we are connected, he is a reliable and responsible person.
I heartily endorse Will Chen for Edmonds City Council and wish you would appoint him to the open position.
