Kevin Wallace brings bipartisan opinion to Bellevue City Council

We need someone with a cool head and strong backbone

I am a strong supporter of Kevin Wallace, and I urge you to re-elect Kevin to the Bellevue City Council on Nov. 5.

I have known Kevin for 10 years, he is always thoughtful, drives for knowledge and insight, balances bipartisan opinion and stands up for what he believes. What I appreciate most is that Kevin listens, considers and is decisive in his actions. He believes in the value in both political parties and rises above the usual rhetoric that weighs down the political process. I have worked directly with Kevin and the Bellevue City Council on the scarring issues of poverty and human trafficking, and Kevin is a passionate defender of women’s rights and the needs of all who live and work in Bellevue.

I’ve read about his opponent Steve Kasner and his “tsunami” approach to public office. And I have no interest nor any regard for such bombastic and inflammatory political tactics. We need cool heads, reasoned minds, people with business acumen and seasoned executives with strong backbones to lead the Bellevue City Council. We need Kevin Wallace to continue to work tirelessly, compassionately and determinedly on long-term planning for Bellevue and the Eastside.

Karen Olcott, Bellevue
